For an early Halloween Treat, the Capital Area Photographers descended upon The Winery at Bull Run for a happy four hours of wine tasting, socializing, and of course playing with camera gear. Everyone knows I'm a total wine enthusiast, so there was no way I would miss an event like this.
Of course, the best way to start off any visit to a vineyard, particularly ones new to you, is a tasting.
Just outside, there happened to be a couple who was celebrating their 25th Wedding Anniversary. They told me that they don't usually visit vineyards, but it seemed fitting for their quiet evening together. They were delighted that I snapped a few photos of them; they explained that 25 years ago they had eloped, and have no photos from their wedding. I told them to "pretend they've been married for 25 years" in the photo, and they laughingly pushed each other away. Aren't they cute?!?
The Winery at Bull Run is a large vineyard located on a segment of Manassas Battlefield. A bit of exploring shows the Civil War history is still visible on the property.
More exploration, less Civil War.
As the sun finally set, and the cold front moved in, the fire wasn't enough anymore. Everyone said their farewells, and went their separate ways until next month's CAP meeting.
