Billeder fra tur til Ribera del Duero

I just got a new camera, Canon EOS 1100D with standard EFS18-55mm, and I brought it to Spain. These are some of my pictures from this fantastic trip in April 2012.

I was invited to Ribera del Duero to participate in the yearly classification of the wines. Thank you for the invitation Ribera.
