Google Maps: Xaló,Alicante,Spain
This shot taken near my house in Xaló, this building is a Riu Rau where grapes are stored and dried to make raisins.This town is famous for it´s wines.It has numerous `Bodegas´ and the winemaking season is from late August to end of September, at this time the roads are full of tractors with trailers loaded full of grapes heading to the `coopertiva´where the grapes are pressed for wine. Years ago the main grape was the `Garnacha´variety but nowadays typically wines are Merlot or Cabernet.Three bracketed images exposure fused and then tonemapped in Photomatix.
