You Capture - Apples

Beth's You Capture assignment this week was to photograph apples. She didn't specify what forms the apples should be in so I had all sorts of ideas but most of them required more work than I could muster the energy and wherewithal to pursue. (That sentence even confused me.)

Anyway, on Tuesday I waited for the photographic golden hour and headed for the best known apple orchard in our area - Garwoods where I immediately started trespassing. I feared falling and dogs but nothing else and kept shooting until it was too dark to continue.

Here's what I came up with.

And here's what I learned. While some apple colors are quite vibrant and others might pale in comparison, either one can result in a pleasing photo.

For lots of pleasing and perhaps beautiful apple pictures, visit Beth at I Should Be Folding Laundry and for even more fun, link up!


  1. Wow, look at that bounty! Now I want to make a pie. =>

  2. I SO wish I lived near apple orchards. What beauty and so fun to pic your own. Love all of these!!

  3. I love that last shot, the depth of field is perfect!

  4. Your trespassing was certainly rewarded! Love that last shot.

  5. I've never seen apple trees with so many apples, these shots are amazing!

  6. I love the sixth one down, with the contrast of the blue sky behind the apples. Great shots, Mom!

  7. so pretty! It almost makes me want an apple....almost! Love the one second to the bottom :) and as always, great shots!


Gentle, strong, kind or true, I'd love to hear what you have to say.
Short or long, it's up to you, your comments and thoughts really make my day!
