Woke up in the dark this morning to meet Daniele Borghello, pro Photographer, at our Buttrio vineyard for a sunrise shoot. The weather has been astounding recently, and it has been a fantastic vintage so far (more details to come). Today did not disappoint, although Daniele did complain of a little bit of foschia (haziness, light fog) that made the morning light more yellow than red.
Now, I'll admit (and you may have guessed) that I'm horribly jealous of great photographers who really know how to use those "big clicky cameras", as my friend Samantha calls them. Someday I'll get me one of those big clilcky cameras and take some good pictures... For now I entertain myself trying to snap a couple shots here and there, and I thought it would be interesting to take pictures of someone taking pictures... Like the movie "Inception", but with vineyard photos... vInception!
The sun came up and revealed a gorgeous morning, lighting the vineyards in Buttrio in a way I haven't seen since I worked the '02 vintage. I managed to pop off a couple of my own before heading home to shower and properly dress for the office. Daniele stuck around to watch the pickers do their thing and get some poetic shots of the old Tocai Friulano vines in the "Plus" vineyard... Something I have not managed to capture with my small, non-clicky camera.
I'm sure Daniele's photos will be stunning, but in the meantime, I'll hit you with my best shot...
