This was a sight in my garden this afternoon. How quickly the seasons seem to revolve – or is it just that I’m getting old? I didn’t plan it this way, but I rather like the way the light shows the texture of the apple skin, and also how the apples make two lines leading up to one in the top left corner. Oh, and yes, there’s still a good bit of summer left!It's kind to share!
One of the fascinating parts of learning (by experience) about photography is finding out what a difference the direction and character of light makes to the way we see any object. Early yesterday (Saturday) morning, I went outdoors into strong sunlight. This was coming from a low angle, and the Sun in a clear sky is almost a point source of light. now, this is often horrible for portraits, but it gives punch to pictures of many ordinary things like these apples.
I really am the last person to talk when it comes to getting up when I don’t have to, but morning light really is amazing!
