Still summer by CaroRichard Still summer by CaroRichard
Summer went, summer passed, summer is ending... at the end of summer and start of fall, it's the apple season in Quebec. We have a custom here that brings a lot of famillies in the orchards to pick up apples in the trees. It's a nice moment to share with friends and families and lots of people are spending at least a day outside, eating apples directly from the trees as well as grabbing some to bring them back home.

We were at the orchard and there was already a few trees totally empty from apples. Not that the season wasn't good (totally the opposite) but mostly because it started early this year and some parts of the orchard were already cleaned up by the orchard's staff and visitors.

I could capture a peaceful moment there with the nice and still hot summer light in the branches and leaves. Enjoy and imagine the birds singing above and the slight murmur of kids playing somewhere further in the plantation under the watch of their parents picking up apples in the trees or just chatting together. All the sounds nicely mixed with the wind singing in the vegetation but dampened by the density of the trees.

Hmmmm... superbe, surtout avec la description qui l'accompagne. J'ai encore manqué ma chance cette année... mais avec un peu de bon vouloir, je vais au moins faire un truc que je me promets depuis des années: marcher sur la rivière-des-milles-iles pendant qu'elle est gelée.

Je souhaite tellement qu'on aie un hiver digne de ce nom! Comme l'étré qu'on a eu.

sweet mercy! it's like the trees have co-ordinated themselves into an artistic pose. Hooray for random chaos of nature! Truth is always stranger (and more interesting) than fiction :D

J'adore led couleurs! Tout est si vivant, on s'y croirait présent.

Le seul hic, c'est que je trouve qu'il manque un point de focus. L'image est tres chargée par les arbres et j'ai de la misere a fixer un endroit précis.

Sinon, excellente photo! +fav

En fait, le point d'intérêt est l'endroit où le soleil perce les arbres... mais le "watermark" de DA détruit complètement l'effet. Mais bon. L'effet de perspective était très intéressant, la lumière était fabuleuse et disons que, dans un verger, les arbres ne sont pas trop espacés... dur de ne pas avoir une photo chargée! Merci pour le commentaire!

Some parts of the region already sees the first colors here too... but summer was so dry this year that I wonder if the colors will not turn "brown" instead of rich red, orange and yellow like usual...
