  1. Hi Robert! Three very beautiful shots for Benni's theme. Nice colours in the first photo... autumn had arrived over there! Love the second in every way, making it my favourite, though the bottom shot has a nice composition... the cattle on a hilly field and not on a plain as it is normally seen...

    1. Thank you, Belita. Autumn is just beginning. The trees are just starting to change color. This photo of the vineyard was taken last year. I liked the perspective of the beach in the second photo. I am pleased that you liked all of the photos.

  2. Robert, lovely scenes, every one! I love your first one, reminds me of upstate New York, autumn in the vineyards. Your second one shows both near and far of the seascape, people walking about, the looming sky overhead. And who would't love a field of daffodils. The flowers in the foreground and the cows in the background are just perfect. You've really shown us New England.

    1. Thank you, Benni. This vineyard has a spectacular vantage point. It never seems that we are in our hometown when we are there. That day in Chatham was a great day. It has to be one of my favorite towns on Cape Cod. We went to photograph the daffodils in the spring. The farm is adjacent to the preserve.

  4. Hi Robert!! Three great shots for Benni's theme. There's a beautiful autumnal feel to your vineyard shot. The second shot looks similar to a place near to where I live, called Freshwater West. Lovely Spring scene in your third shot.

    1. Thank you, Mitch. The trees are just beginning to change. We have had some cool summer nights that stop the sap flow. This photograph in Chatham is across the lighthouse. The lighthouse had to be set back from the shore years ago because of the storms. It was a great day that day. The third place is a park with thousands of daffodils are planted.
