Here's another wide shot (and another winery). This one was a shorter swing on the "pan":

John,

Another great pic. I still think I am right. I think the momma horses drank a lot and the foals got blitzed from them. See how it all fits together???

Yes, I do see, and that's what worries me, YOUR world is actually starting to make sense to me.

Here's a shot of the Babock Vineyard in Lompoc, CA:


Nice pic! I envy you with all that wine tasting... Having grown up in a wine area I can see the attraction Only difference, a good bottle will only cost you $10 in Germany and not $30 like here in Canada...

Anyhow, Lompoc...... We cycled up that one freaking hill coming from the south about 8 years ago. Met a very nice woman (firefighter) that without knowing us (!) handed us her house keys to stay overnight while she was working.

That is because my world IS the world. Just axe me.

Hi John, I grew up about 8 miles out of Lompoc on the way to Buelton. Back then there were only a couple of wineries. Those must be recent pics, as there is green on the hills and not the usual brown. I haven't been back for a visit in over 15 years, I suppose one day I should. Thanks for the shots and the memories they bring.

You're right, Tom, that shot was taken last Saturday (4/17). This is the best time of year for good scenery in California (also baby ponies and strawberries as big as your fist )

If you haven't been back there in a while, you may be surprised to know that there are now over 100 wineries in the area (counting those on both sides of the 101).

You probably recognize those hills in the photo as the Santa Rita Hills and that highway as the 246. One interesting fact is that the wineries just on the other side of those hills produce completely different wines than those produced on this side. And both are different than what's produced just a few miles inland. This is mostly due to the different weather conditions created by the way the hills direct the cooling coastal winds.

So many wines to taste, and so little time.

Andreas, if you're talking about that long, steep grade on the 101 just North of the tunnel (at Gaviota), I don't know why any sane person would attempt that on a bicycle.

And, yes, the folks in that area tend to be very friendly and kind, not to mention laid back and relaxed. Interestingly enough, many of them are escapees from Los Angeles.

Years ago when we got our first digital point'n'shoot, a Canon A60, I went to some trouble & expense to get an adapter and a wide-angle lens. It seems to me this panorama feature kills the need for a wide-angle on a point'n'shoot.

...So maybe a model with decent telephoto abilities and the panorama feature is the one to aim for? Not only point'n'shoot but also all-in-one?
