A Walk in the Vineyards

A Walk in the Vineyards

Since it's February I shouldn't be surprised that actual winter has shown up again. For a while there is was warm enough to lose the jacket and take only a hoody with you. Not any more.

This shot though is from the end of december when I went for an early afternoon walk which faded into evening walk and eventually became a night walk. It doesn't seem to matter what the weather is, you can almost always see people taking walks through the paths that meander their way through the hilly vineyards.

Down in the valley is Müllheim and the mountains you can just see in the distance to the right are in France. Somewhere, underneath those low clouds, is the Rhine river which is the actual border between Germany and it's neighbour.

I'm a little on the fence whether the million textures and details are too much for this image or not. In the end I think the path makes it work. In the photo it provides the same function for your eyes as it does in reality. It leads you along giving you a place to go while looking at everything around you. When the busy details get too much, you can just look down at the soft billows of untouched snow and it gives you a bit of a rest.
