Friday Lens Affair #6


Mission Hill Winery, Canada

Today’s striking photograph has been taken by Maurissa Shalapata from The Wanderfull Traveler Blog in her favourite Mission Hill Winery. Please follow Maurissa on Twitter and Facebook.

Maurissa says: ‘When you start a travel blog you travel and eat differently and, perhaps, more mindfully – opening up to your surroundings and fate, always asking the question of why not?’ I think I kind of admit with her. When you start writing a blog perception change a bit or at least tend to change! I fight it as much as possible! My problem is that no matter how much I enjoy blogging I do not want blogging to have an influence on the way I travel!

I really enjoy my travels and the way how I go about things. My main priority will always be for my traveling style to remain the same. You think it is wrong if I want to be a blogger?

I tend to disagree, I’m a genuine person in my blog only because I didn’t let myself to be influenced by trends in blogging :) I will be keeping you updated on where I’m standing with it every now and than :) Ha ha ha

Picture Story: Mission Hill Winery, Canada

Each Summer I try to make the trip out to Mission Hill Winery. Living in Kelowna we are able to escape to wineries as often as we please and taste the bounty of our soil. My favourite white wine, Perpetua by Mission Hill, is such a wine.

I decided to capture its complexities in a photo and remembering a spectacular effect from a Jean Baudrillard photograph where the Bastille is reflected in a glass of white wine. I was inspired to do something similar with the mountains and lake that create this wine’s character.

    This pic says “crisp” to me. The crisp clarity of a good wine, and the crisp cool water of the lake. Just beautiful!
