Smoke in the Vineyard

Last week I made my way to Eastern Washington to shoot some wine tasting notes. There was a general haze about everywhere we went. While looking for our next shot in a vineyard near Mattawa, another one of these orbs appeared. This was the only one I saw during the couple days over there, but it was reminiscent of the fires that were burning just over the horizon.

Here’s another look at the haze that was hanging over the landscape.

(This was the first time that I’ve experimented with pyrocluster in Cinema 4d. It’s a little more difficult to control the size over lifetime than I anticipated, but that will leave something new for next time!)

Where Wine Goes to Age

Last week I was shooting working on some interviews for a winery. When we were done, I had a chance to pull out my camera for a couple minutes.

The room containing all the wine aging in various barrels looked to be near the size of a football field.  Through much of the room, the barrels were stacked almost to the ceiling.
