The Adelaide Hills Wine Region are pleased to announce the winners of their Winter Reds ‘Capture the Season’ Photography Competition, with one image taking out two of the three awards.
Up and coming Adelaide photographer Aaron Citti’s image Winter Solitude 2 was a favourite, awarded both the ‘Capture the Season’ judges award and the ‘Media’s Choice’ award, which was judged by SA’s most influential media.
Festival goers voted on the shortlisted images displayed throughout 22 cellar doors across the Winter Reds weekend, with Graham Darlington’s image Misty Rays taking out the People’s Choice award.
David Evans, AIPP South Australian Photographer of the Year 2006 and 2009, and Capture the Season judge feels the winning entries are very deserving.
“It was the bold composition that first attracted me to the winning image selected by the ‘Capture the Season’ award judges,” David explains.
“The single, centred tree in the folds of the hills is perfectly suited to the panoramic format, while the misty scene evokes feelings of solitude in a pristine hills winter environment and the sense of place is palpable.”
As the winner of the ‘Capture the Season’ award, Aaron will win a $1000 voucher from Atkins Technicolour to help further his photographic pursuits and will have the rights to his image purchased by the Adelaide Hills Wine Region.

The region is located in the Mount Lofty Ranges east of Adelaide, the capital city of South Australia. Stretching in a narrow band approximately 70km long, the highest vineyards are sited between 600-650 metres altitude in areas such as Crafers, Summertown, Piccadilly and Carey Gully.
The Adelaide Hills is one of the largest geographical wine regions in Australia, and amongst the most diverse in terms of climate, soil and topography. The region consists of two registered sub-regions, Lenswood and Piccadilly Valley.
