Grapevines and Hay En Route to Venice
En Route to Venice, Italy
I loved the traveling we did through such varied countryside during the trip. I found a setting on my camera that would capture fairly decent photos from the van window, and so each day I took several shots of the landscape we passed.
When we were heading to Venice, we moved through such varied scenery - wheat fields, olive groves, deep, rich woodlands and mountains, ravines, to more of the farming country that so closely resembled my own. Here, amid the backdrop of hazy mountains, hay bales and grapevines ...! I had to take a photo just to document this 'home' scene! And the funny thing -- when I got back to North Carolina and we were driving past the fields -- here too - hay -- rolled into bales and sitting, like these, in the field.
We lacked (and missed!), of course, those wonderful mountains ... sigh!
