Another typical road by ludwigsdiana

Another typical road

leading to a wine estate. Of the 144 wine estates here in Stellenbosch, I think we have only managed about 30 in the last 14 years since moving here.
That's an amazing number of wine estates - how nice that they're all able to survive. Definitely must be prime growing country for grapes.

@milaniet Thanks Milanie, not sure that the smaller ones will survive these harsh lockdowns. They are losing most of their income since March, as they are not allowed to sell or export any wine during lockdown. Harvest will start next month at some, maybe they do not even have any staff anymore. So sad what covid has done to so many all over in the world.

Fantastic with the red lead-in and the beautiful compound beyond.

Plenty to go at yet then - nice leading line!
January 24th, 2021  
wow that must be dusty!
January 24th, 2021  
a lovely lead in to this winery. love the red dirt.
January 24th, 2021  
Love the color of that road
January 24th, 2021  
Fabulous leading line

Beautiful red sand on this dirt road. Love the way it carries the eyes with it to the wine estate. One thing I like with 365 is seeing scenes like today. Just before this shot I saw one from a friend from the UK where everywhere is covered with thick snow and then I see this with beautiful sunshine and colour.

So many more to visit!! And then of course re-visit old favourites!

The long dirt road leads to this beautiful estate....well worth visiting.
January 24th, 2021  
Wonderful leading lines to yet another beautiful estate
January 24th, 2021  
Good to see the contrast between the estates.
January 24th, 2021  
A very strong leading line!
January 24th, 2021  
Lov the leading line and the resort road

Wonderful leading line. Texas is in a winery “free for all” right now. Too many are opening, and honestly only a very few are making really good wine. Your wine estates are all beautiful and I’m sure their wines are wonderful. California is making wine the right way, many years to develop their grapes and winemaking skills. Texas is a hundred years behind California in learning how to consistently make good wine.

The dirt track road looks so dry against the green of the vines.
January 24th, 2021  
That's a lot of wine estates to try and revive their businesses. Do they deliver, or click and collect shopping I wonder?
January 24th, 2021  
Nice:)
January 24th, 2021  
Love the red clay. so colorful
January 24th, 2021  
Lovely view! Looks like North Georgia with its red dirt.
January 24th, 2021  
That is a lot of wine estates! I love the low POV of this shot. It’s a very long and straight road leading to the estate. It is interesting to me how we have some very similar looking roads in Alabama. Very few of them are this straight though.

lovely capture ...
January 24th, 2021

January 24th, 2021

January 24th, 2021  
Great rural scene
January 24th, 2021  
Nice POV and capture
January 24th, 2021  
Impressive pov and entrance
January 24th, 2021

January 24th, 2021  
Awesome comp and pov!
January 24th, 2021  
Great pov
January 24th, 2021  
Great shot of the natural road and the beautiful country view.
January 24th, 2021  
144- wow that is quite the number! I hope the smaller ones will be able to make it through- even if it's just selling their grapes. Beautiful shot.
January 25th, 2021  
I feel the long stretch of dusty road ahead.
January 25th, 2021  
Beautiful colours
January 25th, 2021  
This road really leads you into the photo.
January 25th, 2021  
30 isn’t bad. The ones you have photographed are all so beautiful. It would be tempting to find a couple of favorites instead of seeing all of them. That soil sure is red. Must be part of your terroir.
January 25th, 2021  
Awesome capture.
January 25th, 2021  
@onewing It is bone dry and dusty Babs, the vineyards get watered.
@busylady They normally deliver Judith, but not now during lockdown :-(
@olivetreeann Some are doing just that Ann, many more might have to do it too.
@shutterbug49 Yes Debbie, the soil they thrive on best is this red clay.
January 25th, 2021  
Great POV!
January 25th, 2021  
Awesome. Great depth of field
January 25th, 2021  
@jacqbb @yolanda Thanks so much :-)
