My wife and I went to Napa Valley a couple of weeks ago and I brought my new Tamron 24-70mm and my T2i because my 5D Mark III had not arrived yet.
I thought you might like seeing some of the images I got from that trip so I put it to music and added a little narration from the movie Bottle Shock which is definitely in my top 50 movies of all time. It’s not in my top 10 list which I should share sometime, however you might be disappointed with my list because it has a lot of comedies and films that are not cinematic master pieces.
You can’t help but enjoy the way he delivers his lines (of course I butchered his line), you can watch it on NetFlix:
52:54 Alan Rickman “Wine is sunlight held together by water. The poetic wisdom of the Italian physicist, philosopher and stargazer, Galileo Galilei.
Other good lines in the movie about Napa Valley
51:30 Bill Pullman “The vineyard’s best fertilizer is the owner’s footsteps. Its alluvial, sedimentary, volcanic soil. You want to limit the irrigation because it make the vines struggle, intensifies the flavor. A comfortable grape, a well-watered well-fertilized grape grows into a lazy ingredient of lousy wine. So with hardship comes enlightenment.”
43:30 Freddy Rodríguez “You have to have it in your blood. You have to grow up with the soil underneath your nails and the smell of the grape in the air that you breathe. The cultivation of the vine is an art form. The refinement of its juice is a religion that requires pain and desire and sacrifice.
Anyway I just thought I would share some of the images. I am really liking the new Tamron 24-70mm, I am already kind of abusing it by getting it wet. But it preformed great as travel lens, I even walked 5 miles with it with my Black Rapid Strap no problem and stuffed it in to a bike bag on a biking trip.
