When we first we arrived in New Zealand we stayed in a house in a vineyard.  When Autumn came we were surrounded by a blazing sea of gold, as the vines coloured in the colder weather.  Here I have shown dark droplets of wine coloured grapes in between the yellow leaves.  Behind the vines the countryside rises up; pine trees, sheep and vineyards glowing in the Autumn sunshine.  Lombardy Poplars spike up from the rounded contours of the land  like exclamation marks or even orange licks of flame.
