Chianti Classico Winery

I am taking a photo workshop at the Dievole Wine Resort in the Chianti Classico hills north of Siena, Italy. It is a beautiful and relaxing place.

The view from my room.

The winery produces whites and reds and uses steel, wood, and cement barrels. We had a tasting and tour this afternoon.

Floral Ambiance

High Altar Ambiance

High Altar, Trinidad Church (Iglesia de la Trinidad), Porto, Portugal

The high altar in Trinidad Church, Porto, Portugal, was decorated with vibrant flowers. Flowers were placed throughout the church on all the side altars and other spaces with surface areas. I don’t know it was a special occasion or religious holiday. It was at the end of May. If anyone knows the background on this use of flowers, please let me know. I was fascinated by the stepped structure behind the altar itself. I saw several altars with this type of stepped backdrop in Portugal but don’t know the symbolism.
