BIG SHOT of the week

Fort Rock is a massive, natural landmark rising from the flat, barren desert of central Oregon. I think this photo not only captures the complete desolation of the land for which a person can gaze for miles upon miles, but it also reveals the magnificent impact that a single structure can have on an otherwise predictable and potentially unimpressive landscape. Without question, The Rock boldly commands attention, as if a Sargent entering a room of new army recruits.

I also love the color saturation and wispy, feathery appearance of the clouds.

If you think that is flat, desolate, and barren, you obviously have not visited West Texas. :-) Beautiful picture.

My Wine Personality:
For the most part I’m a chardonnay, as I consider myself to exhibit a somewhat sunny and mellow disposition (most of the time), but because I find a tremendous amount of joy out of showering my two kids with hugs and kisses, I also possess the subtle sweetness often found in a riesling. But don’t be fooled. I love a great outdoor adventure and am willing to try anything once. This occasional display of boldness is thought to match that of a cabernet, whereas my appreciation for nature suggests that I have an earthy component to my personality—very characteristic of a merlot.
