I took this photograph of a lovely big old apple tree a few weeks ago. I love the shape of this tree with its arching branches – it has something of a character. The abundance of fruit was rather wonderful to see too. The way the low sun illuminates half of the tree – highlighting some branches and apples whilst leaving the rest in shadow – really appeals to me; I like the light effects that soft Autumn sunlight brings.
It’s still grey here today, although the sun did peek through for a short time yesterday. Blue sky appeared too – just before sundown. There’s a slim chance of a bit of sunshine for the weekend.
