Here is the orchard kitty-corner SE from St. Wenceslaus Church. My neighborhood is beautiful all year, but it is especially lovely right now. Below is the view on the old Lee Mann Road, looking west, where the dark green of the pines between a yellow mass of maples and the more complex yellow of the orchard caught my eye.
Finally, here are two shots of the same orchard on Eagle Highway, taken on the same day, just moments apart, first viewed through a rainy windshield and then with no filtering medium between camera and trees.
Hi Pamela...These are all lovely! My favorite is the last one. I can just imagine a crop of dandelions in the middle. KarenReplyDelete
I know what you're saying about the dandelions, Karen. That green is so vivid, isn't it?Delete
Yes, the grass is vivid, reminding me of the "grass" in my Easter baskets as a kid. I also love the "tunnel of trees" the tree branches make. KarenReplyDelete
The tunnel effect is the result of my closing in on the shot. Earlier I'd included more of the tops of the trees, and there was sky visible between the rows. This completely "sheltered" look pleased me more, so I'm glad you liked it, too.Delete
Every time I see your photos I think to myself - "I have to get up there at this time of year." :) No matter what time of year you are depicting!ReplyDelete
