Oh, it’s wonderful: two days of sunshine, and one more to come! After, that showers begin again. I have managed to get out with my camera during the sunshine, and you’ll see those images later after they’re processed.
Today, I’m taking you to the second half of our journey into Napa that began with the Quixote Winery (in my last post) and ended with the di Rosa Center for Contemporary Art.
We drove to the art gallery after lunch and stopped along the way for more picture taking. You know photographers, we just keep clicking when we see something pretty. On approach, the gallery is pretty, the grounds are beautiful, but I wasn’t feeling the art. But, as I’ve learned by having my images critiqued, art is totally subjective. (I did find out that my “Droplets” picture did make it to the table from which the winners were chosen!) While I may not like something, someone else will.
The grounds that the two galleries sit on are beautiful, complete with a lake. I did the best I could with the limited access we had to the grounds. The highlight of the trip was the stop at the Lake Berryessa, in Napa County, and its spillway or Glory Hole.
So, here are the images of the country side, art gallery and Glory Hole!

Glad that you made it to di Rosa. Wonderful photo ops.
Yes, it is beautiful. Are there other places my group can go to?
I really like the exposure on the last glory hole photo. The Walkway to the Gallery I think is my favorite. The colors on it are very relaxing. The bottles are cool. Some very nice art you were able to see. I would love to do something like this one day as well. Thanks for sharing your adventure!
Thanks Connie. It was difficult shooting the Glory Hole through the chain link fence and not getting the fence! PM me on Facebook. If you’re available on Tuesdays, you can come with my Camera Totin’ Tuesday group.

Oh sounds fun. Thanks. If I get a break in work I will.
All are so beautiful, but my two (2) favorite are the mustard growing on the grape vines and the Glory Hole. BTW, what is the Glory Hole?
Thanks Donna! The Glory Hole is the spillway for the Monticello Dam in Lake Berryessa. When the lake is at a high mark, the excess water spills out through the Glory Hole. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lake_Berryessa. Three months of rain finally put it into operation. It’s been dry for the years I’ve been going by there.
Thank you for the auspicious writeup. It in truth was once a enjoyment
account it. Look complicated to far delivered agreeable from you!
By the way, how could we keep up a correspondence?
