Who Cares that it's 185º out there this weekend? We have answers!
First, it's the start of Washington State Wine Month! To celebrate we'll have special drinks and special prices on Burnt Bridge Cellars wine- bottles and glass pours- all month long.
Second, our air conditioning works great, and if you look like you might have symptoms of heat stroke we'll let you hang out in the barrel room for a little while where it's 60º!
Third (and most important), we're having a Cool Beverage weekend!
- Friday night is Sangria night- along with all of the First Friday trimmings, including a menu of Greek food from the Class Cooking kitchen, great classical guitar music by one of our favorite musicians David Tutmark, and a beautiful new show of landscape photography from Glenn Miller. Drink special: Sangria! Sangria- our very simple and delicious recipe- Burnt Bridge red wine with some citrus fruit and a bit sugar (but not too sweet!) poured over ice.
New Art by Glenn Miller, landscape photography
"Glenn Miller is a retired entrepreneur and award winning photographer:
I have been a avid photographer since age 14. Retirement has allowed me the time and resources to study the art of digital photography. Much has changed since the days of film. We can see the results of our efforts immediately not having to wait days or weeks for film developing. Manipulation of the nuances of brightness and color are far easier and more precise than anything that was possible using dark room techniques (although I still process my pictures in a “dark room”)
Even given the ease which we are able to process today's photographs, the real proof is printing large format photographs. Most of the prints presented here are printed on a large format Epson printer using premium luster photographic paper. Each photograph as been printed numerous times in a smaller version to adjust for the various tonal differences found when translating from a 27” computer monitor display to any print media. Each type of printer and print media will have subtle differences that must be accounted for to get satisfactory results.
The gold standard of photographic printing today is done using either acrylic or metal prints, both are expensive and have their own merits and drawbacks. I have chosen traditional print for the bulk of my work simply because it is primarily for my own learning and enjoyment.
I hope to inspire your wanderlust for the scenic beauty of the Pacific Northwest with my photography. All my photographs can be custom printed and framed to your specifications up to 40” X 60”." For more information please see his website: https://glennmiller.smugmug.com
