Magical! Dawn in the Gimblett Gravels Wine Growing District. ... See MoreSee Less

"Peach Dawn" Te Awa Winery vines and frost fan, with Te Mata Peak in the distance, Hastings, Hawke's Bay, New Zealand There was a thin layer of mist on the ground this morning, which turned the sky a lovely shade of peach about 20 minutes before sunrise. We took a trip down to the Te Awa Winery in the Gimblet Gravels area of Hawke's Bay to shoot the sunrise, and also to shoot some of the autumn colour that is appearing on the trees and the vines at the moment (as seen in this shot from Liz this morning www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=1928875760682010&set=a.1416280335274891.1073741830.10000678813008... ) . The windmill in this shot is a giant fan used to circulate the air over the vines when there is a risk of frost in the winter, and the prominent hill in the background is Te Mata Peak, about 20kms east of Te Awa Winery.
