In The Vineyard

Square Perspectives Photo Challenge ~ Australian Landscapes #28

Destination: Stanthorpe, Queensland

Stanthorpe, on Queensland’s Granite Belt, is renowned for its crisp winters, perfect for growing stone fruit, apples and pears. The region is also famous for its vineyards and award winning wineries.

And where there’s a vineyard, there’s bound to be a barrel or two.

 

While our travel plans are on hold I’m joining in every day with Becky’s July Square Perspectives Photo Challenge over at The Life of B. The rules are simple: photos must be square and fit the theme of perspective. My posts represent the definition of perspective as a vista – seeing something over distance or time.

Off-Season ~ Weekly Photo Challenge

The Tenterfield area is best known for its lush pastures, which produce excellent beef and lamb.

There are also several popular wineries in the district. Prior to harvest season, the vines are protected by heavy netting. It stops the birds from stealing the ripening fruit and, should there be storms, also prevents damage from hail.
