(20) Almost Harvest

End of August, late afternoon. Two trees just north of the willows that run parallel with the driveway to Nick and Cindy’s house. I sat in the shade of a neighboring apple tree to hide from the heat of the sun.

The tree trunks came out well, for a change, with greater contrast and expression. The apples reminded me of stellar constellations while the yellow wash over the leaves worked to capture the light of the sun. Used a little black for a change instead of just purple to outline elements of the work.
