Reflections of Apples


The apple trees grow in a garden high above a backwater of the Leet. It is a hot day in September, and I have to wade through shoulder-high stinging nettles to get near the water, which photographs so blue, with the nearer leaves so black. I have a kind of longing to go into this mysterious garden high above me.

    • What struck me was how blue the water was in the photograph – somehow the camera captures a blue that the eye doesn’t quite see, though it must be there. I wonder how much we see what we expect to see. Maybe the camera picks up depths of colour that the surface hides. Thanks for your comment, Doron. Enjoy your day.

    • Hi, Seonaid. The reflected apples were a surprise, I just came across them – I like reflections t the moment. Yes, I did have the feeling that the apples were like something out of an old story… but NOT Snow White!
