Shot on Nikon Df with 24-85mm lens and 105mm lens
No matter the duration of the trip, every time we visit Melbourne we allocate a whole day to exploring the vineyards and wineries of Yarra Valley. Unlike previous years when we would walk-in to at least four wineries before lunch time, this year we only managed to visit two or three in total. However, similar to last year's trip, we enjoyed a three-course lunch at the Oakridge winery, overlooking the spectacular view of the vineyards and its mountain backdrop.
As usual, the quality of the food was exceptional, especially when the chefs managed to convince me that medium rare steak is more-than-just-acceptable, and that all other steaks I had sampled up to that point were poor excuses for culinary excellence.
Max (the 105mm lens) was also given the opportunity to exhibit his potential, capturing many of the textures in such crisp detail and vivid colour. Very proud moment for me. If these photos still don't inspire you to visit Oakridge then there is something very wrong with you.
