Nature is full of amazing and beautiful displays, many of which are taken for granted. Go into any grocery store or super market and apples abound; how many of us take a moment to appreciate how this apple started?
About five years ago, I decided to follow the development of an apple orchard, which was close to my daily commute throughout the year. It’s one of those fun projects that keep one’s interest in photography keen, and taking a walk through an apple orchard in the morning is a great way of invigorating the senses for the day that lies ahead.
This shot is from early May, when the blooms were fully developed, just before the wither and start developing into tasty, crisp New England apples. With the beautiful light, it was just amazing to look more closely at these trees and their wondrous adornment!
Hope you enjoy this moment of wonder and think about it, when you bite into your next apple.
