So, today was (surprise, surprise!) another rainy day. Hey, like I said... NorCal winter. This is the norm.
But it was not like yesterday -- today was one of those amazingly photogenic, mild and misty gray days -- not enough rainfall to ruin the fun, just enough to make it interesting.
So I decided, what better to do than to cruise up Highway 29 and simply take in the natural beauty of the textured clouds rolling over and nestling into the mountains beyond the grapevines?
It turns out a beautiful spot for this -- despite the (somewhat surprising) crowds -- was that iconic establishment of Napa Valley: Robert Mondavi vineyards.
