Vineyard Jewels

Our very own Jeannie Kokes won second place in the Observer Photography contest in the category Landscape. Entitled, Vineyard Jewels, the judges said, “We were impressed with the creative idea of using a close-up for the landscape category. Kokes’s composition, good eye for lighting and very shallow depth of field caused this image to jump out at us.”

The photo was taken in the early morning at Gathering Ground when she was working to help save the flowers from the rose chafer beetles that plague the vineyard.
