Barossa Valley

NEW RELEASE  |  A classic Barossa Valley scene on the eastern side of the valley at sunset, looking over the vineyards of Bethany to the hills beyond.

This is a scene that will never be repeated…well, without a cherry picker or perhaps a drone. Since creating this photograph, with permission, from the elevated side of a dam, the dam has since been removed and it isn’t possible to look over the vines from this place anymore. It’s kind of nice thinking that this moment is gone, but it will never be forgotten. How did I celebrate this image? With a glass of wine, of course!

The Barossa Valley in South Australia is one of Australia’s largest, oldest and most well known wine regions. It is particularly known for producing red wines, especially shiraz. I can tell you that there are many, many other fine varieties that come out of the valley…for instance Bethany, featured in the photograph, makes a damn fine white port.
