Accidental Find

When I was out on my drive yesterday taking the photo posted yesterday, I noticed a large church in the hills across the street. I drove over and found that it was a monastery. It is called the Carmelite House of Prayer and it open to the public. The grounds were beautiful and there was not a soul in sight. It was late in the day and I was having problems getting the exposure right, but you can see how tranquil it was. I will be visiting here for shots often.

Nice photo, love the reflection although I guess in the grounds of a monastery that should go with the territory.
I do not know much about Napa, but oddly watched movie last week "Bottle Shock" set in Napa in 1976 based on true story of French discovering Californians could also make great wine.
