Vineyard Photos in the Autumn

Wild Grass

Autumn Vineyard
This photo was taken in March 2015 with a Canon 5D MkIII, Canon EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM Camera Settings: f/8.0, 1/100 seconds and ISO 200

I regularly take photos in a vineyard close to where I stay in Stellenbosch. Every time I try to take photos that look different from my previous photos. These photos were all taken while walking around in the vineyard. I did not use a tripod. I just took the photos handheld. All the photos were taken with my Canon 24-105mm f/4.0 IS L lens and Canon 5Dmk III.

The sun was low and I saw how the wild grass was glowing from the back lighting. I tried to capture the front wild grass in focus and the background out of focus. It was really easy to create such a compelling image. I tried different angles and came up with 3 different photos that looks great. 

After that I photographed a leaf, black jacks and a white Queen Annes Lace flower.

Red Autumn Leaf

These next two photos of a red autumn leaf was taken with two different apertures and a slight difference in the saturation in post production. Such a small difference but made a huge difference in the final image. I cannot decide which photo I prefer.

Black Jacks

These Black Jacks also know by its scientific name, bidens pilosa, was growing between the vineyards. I would have preferred to use my macro lens but did not have it with me. The 24-105 does not have an extremely close focusing distance but I made it work. I think the photo still came out alright.

Queen Annes Lace Flower

It was getting dark as I was taking this picture. In order to make sure I do not introduce too much noise in the photo I did not want to use a small aperture but at the same time I also did not want too small depth of field. I used f/8.0 and in the end only the center is in focus and the sides falls out of focus. It creates a wonderful sense of depth in the photo.

Queen Anne Lace Flower got it’s common name from a legend about Queen Anne of England pricking her fingers and a drop of her blood landed on the white lace she was sewing. The flower resembles lace, and oftentimes the flower has a solitary purple dot in the center. Read more
