My first visit to the Rhone Valley, France, was filled with great wine, delicious food and wandering the streets of old cities just to see what was around the next corner. The way the light illuminated one street, while creating deep shadows on the next narrow lane meant that I was constantly lifting my camera to try and capture the scene. Driving next to vineyard after vineyard it was clear to see why the Rhone Valley has such a name for itself in the wine industry and the history of wine making.
Wandering the streets of Spain, feels like stepping back to a time when life was simpler and community was stronger. Town squares were a meeting place for all major events, entrance ways were grand, and people took the time to sit in the street and have conversations with their neighbors or enjoy a coffee or glass of wine.
