Great Window Shots dominating the news

Apple-Touch-IconAAs some of you know, here at Peachridge, we put our bottles in windows down here in southeast Texas as available wall space and basements are few and far between. Natural light can bring out the strongest characteristics of a bottle. Bottle colors also change with the ever-shifting passage of the day and seasons. It is also interesting to look beyond the windows into the background where you can see the present weather conditions and sometimes the time of day.

These pictures are wonderful and represent a nice cross-section of various bottle types.


[PRG] This could easily be my favorite image of the lot. This picture from Mike Brauser depicts a combination of various types of bottles, jars and glass orbs. The mood created is just spectacular.

I though I would share some of my favorite pictures of late of great window shots.
