Ode to the End of Summer

The Orchard copy

I have been wanting to photograph an apple orchard for some time now and was able to get to an orchard yesterday.  I drove to Harvest Moon Farm & Orchard in North Salem, New York.  It is not apple season yet but the apple trees were full.  I did pick peaches which were the most beautiful, unblemished peaches I have seen.  The orchard sits on top of a hill and the view is spectacular.  The farm has wonderful home made loaves of bread as well as cider.  You can sit out on their patio and have breakfast and lunch. Definitely worth a visit.
 
I photographed the above with my IPhone and did most of the work on my Ipad.  I brought the image into Photoshop for a few finishing touches.
 
This is the original image.

  1. The thoughts of fall make me smile! Great work, Karen. Next time you are planning a trip to Harvest Moon let me know, I live very close to there.
