I am pleased to say that in 2021 two of my photos won awards in the 2021 IFWTWA photo contest. I received 1st place in the winery category with my photo entitled Primus Room Bodegas Salentein. I also received an Honorable mention in the bottles and glasses category with my photo Bottle of Pinot Noir with Vineyards.
Primus Room Bodegas Salentein
My photo, Primus Room Bodegas Salentein, was taken on a trip I made to Mendoza Argentian. I was taken when with the image of the piano sitting in the barrel room. I could only imagine and hear the melody played at the concert given a few nights before my visit.
The photo was used in an article called Bodegas Salentein: Defining the Wines of the Valle De Uco.
Bottle of Pinot Noir With Vineyards
This photo of a bottle of Pinot Noir was taken at Iris Vineyards. I was enamored with the view along the arbor wall. I thought, why not put the bottle in the opening of the wall can capture the wine bottle and the view?
The photo was used in an article called Iris Vineyards: Showcasing the Southern Willamette Valley
To view my winning photos and other photos I entered in the contest, as well as those from other writers that submitted to the photo contest.
