Melanie is my friend who lives in Australia and she loves photography. Every month Melanie has taken part in this monthly neme and we managed to find a way round her not having a blog by posting here. I love that we have found a way for her to take part so once again Melanie, over to you:
With January 5th coming so close to Christmas I almost forgot about it being the 5 in 5 day. Fortunately though it was a day we planned to take a trip to the Clare Valley and I had my camera with me. Not much variety in the spot I chose for the 5 in 5 I am afraid just vines and the inside of a cellar door. The day was extremely hot with temperatures over 40C in places. Clare Valley is a couple of hours drive from where we live. It is one of South Australia’s smaller wine regions with around 30 cellar doors. It is known for its Riesling wines and has some of the best Rieslings in Australia. The Crabtree cellar door where I took my 5 in 5 photos is in the town of Watervale. It uses the phrase ‘Hand pruned, Hand picked, Hand crafted’ as its vision statement. Their wines do very well in shows often winning trophies and medals. Maybe my photos will inspire you to check out more about wineries in the Clare Valley.
As always, a big thank you to Melanie and if this has inspired you to pick up your camera take part in this challenge you have until 25th before this months link closes. It's great fun and this post should answer any questions or give other information that you need.
Links for this months posts are here and hopefully I'll be back with more photos from Melanie and myself next month. I hope you will join us!
