South African Winelands
I took these photos the day after Christmas this past December 2013 at the Creation and Ataraxia vineyards while wine tasting over a late lunch. In the first photo of the series you can see Ataraxia’s tasting room, modeled after a chapel, which sits in the Hemel en Aarde Valley “Heaven and Earth” below Babylonstoren “Babylon’s Tower”. One can see the warm day yielding to the falling sun as sea-breeze clouds crawl up the valley from Hermanus. The second and third photos were taken on Creation’s back deck and vineyard. It is one of the most Elysian places I’ve been in my life.
