What I saw in the bottom of my wine glass

As I sat down to eat, the bottom of the glass sparkled. Fortunately, my iPhone was near. Matt

So... I clicked on this with a little trepidation thinking the title was hinting at something much worse (or grosser). Needless to say I was more than a little relieved. :-D

As for a quicky cellphone shot, I don't know what i like more, the diffraction of light at the base or the reflection of the French doors on the wine's surface.

A shame you couldn't capture a crisper photo. Of course try to replicate that and you'll probably never get the same results. Murphy's Law and all.

I like this for the same and wonder if it's for the soft focus that it works so well! S-

Thanks Steve. My younger son and I are wine and single malt snobs, and are always texting each other shots or our latest shots. I will never admit how many singles we have killed; people would gasp at the cost. Matt
