A vintage view in Napa
Robert Weiner of Encino took this photo on New Year’s Day in Napa. Weiner, his wife, Jane, and another couple were visiting for the holiday, and it had rained, off and on, for the entire trip. They said it was even more beautiful in the rain. “On our last day, Mother Nature treated us to this incredible sight,” Weiner said, of his midafternoon shot. “A beautiful house, a frontyard vineyard and the ‘end of the rainbow.’” (Robert Weiner)
