Crossing a vineyard

Somehow this shot sums up so many vital aspects of this area. Vineyards, planted in an age-old tradition; an impressive gateway, to advertise both status and sense of place; steel barriers to save unwary motorists from hidden dangers at the edge of the road; simple poles for essential telephone lines and complex structures for the power lines that feed the country; and overhead a winged craft free of all these constraints, responding to the feather-light touch of one who loves the freedom of the air.
