High noon

I was speaking at a luncheon at one of the local wineries today (yes there’s wine produced in this part of the world). I hadn’t been out of town in this direction for some time so I took the opportunity to take a few photographs. The land was being hit by the midday sun (well, perhaps a little later) so everything’s more contrasty than I would like.

An audioBlog accompanies these photographs [2.3 Mbytes, 6 min 20 sec duration]. The audio commentary is also distributed as a podcast. You need to subscribe to my RSS2 feed towards the bottom of the right hand column on this page and you need to use aggregator software capable of utilising this.

Volcanic plug
A volcanic plug. There are several of these in this area marking the location of volcanic activity a long time before I was born.
