corner view "saturday"









On Saturday we left dreary cold Vitoria and headed for better weather. A half an hour later we were basking in blue skies in La Rioja (wine country). It´s amazing the difference 50 km can make... (It´s also amazing the things I have done thanks to cv. If I hadn´t had this theme dancing around in my head I would have probably spent the day on the sofa... And I thank you for that!)

Next week´s theme comes from Soisses and is "me". We did this theme exactly one year ago... It´ll will be fun to see how much we changed.

Happy Corner Viewing!

stunningly beautiful!

you know, you really should do a photo book about the region you live in and the places you travel to around spain.

may i say i'm glad you didn't spend your saturday on the sofa ?!!!
i'm just back from Morocco & discovered the CV theme yesterday evening ! but i'm playing (it just pushed me a little to dowload my vacation pix to my laptop quicker)
hope you're not uncomfortable "down there" with the heat this week...

We are so into the World Championship Football, so no Saturday CV for me, but a lot of Orange!

Maybe 'we' 'll meet in the Finals ;-)

Lisa notes... said...

love the feel I get from your photos. Especially the one of the two people walking.

I agree that CV gets me out there, too, when I have a theme running around in my head. So fun. Thanks for hosting us!

Victoria @ Hibiscus Bloem said...

Looks wonderful. Hope you enjoyed a glass or two of Rioja under that lovely blue sky.

Jennifer said...

Gorgeous Jane...we are an ocean apart, but our landscapes are so similar...although Spain seems much more exotic than California!

Don said...

Thanks for your visit to the wine country of Spain. I live near California wine country and I never tire of it. Drinking it in, so to speak! ;)

Conny said...

Hee, hee. Saturday pictures from wine country are much finer than picture from the sofa. :>) Such a beautiful Saturday you had!

The Corner View has benefitted us all in ways we never expected.
Cheers ~

denise said...

So beautiful! I did end up spending my Saturday on the sofa - my back went out. I'd have much rather been in wine country! ;)

RosaMaría said...

what a great saturday you had!
your photos are so tasty! thanks for sharing them!

Once Upon A Parent said...

my goodness your scenery is beautiful. It makes life here in the burbs seems so bland. Ugh! Hopefully I will be back at "CV" next week.

KathyA said...

dancingmatilda365 said...

oh Jane, I know I'm in Spain when I see your photos....fabulous details. i was invited there once, but didn't go because i knew i would never leave!

Theresa said...

Lucky you to drive to such a different atmosphere.

Rocio said...

Hum, let me guess Jane..... You spent the day in Haro. Did you perchance eat lamb at "El Terete"? Maybe enjoyed a visit to the new Torre Muga?
I have a visit pending myself.
Beautiful pictures, as always. The Rioja tourist bureau should pay you girl !!

Ma life à moi said...

What a lovely Sunday, cheers!

So beautiful! Wine country is beautiful country, particularly in the company of loved ones and a delicious bottle.

Cherry B said...

Oh I was there last year and just loved it! So jealous that you get to enjoy it any ole year you decide :)

n a t s u m i said...

You always take great pictures! Lovely! Thank you for sharing!! Have a great weekend!

Reyes said...

Ha! you have been to my domains! (not really, I am from Rioja Baja but I do like Haro, I even have a picture of the Paternina Palace hanging in my living room!).
Love the San Fermín Photos, they are stunning, like all your photos! Besos, Reyes

jgy said...

Hi Jane, I love your corner view, the sky and the light are so clear. The pinks and reds and whites in the series above (bullfight, though feels very peaceful!) are gorgeous too. Sorry I didn't post last week corner view, ... have a great trip:))

Laura said...

OK, sooooooo how was the partying last night? Give us a full report! We were watching of course on TV here from germany. I stepped ouside in our garden for a few moments during the game and it was like neighborhood-TV-stereo.
I think in the end the germans seemed pleased with 3rd place.

soisses said...

ohhh... this week is my cv ;-) it`s a pity i didn`t do a post last week. i am sorry... have a nice day, yours dani

Juniper said...

What great photos, you are talented. So when will your book be out? YOu must put your photos and stories of life in Spain and travelling together somehow.. I for one would love to buy it. I could look at your pictures daily, they are really wonderful.

Jenna said...

I don't know if you are still accepting ideas for corner views, but I think it would be very interesting to do "doorbells". :)

Hope you are having a great week!
