Crabapple Tree


This photo was taken as I was out running errands in the pouring rain. The fog was at higher elevations.

Camera settings and post-processing: Shot with the Canon EOS 5D and the Canon 70-200mm f/2.8L IS lens with polarizing filter at 90mm, ISO 200, f/2.8, shutter 1/320s. Adjusted white balance, basic curves adjustment, color balancing.

Thank you for visiting Durham Township!



I am madly in love with this photograph.
Absolutely beautiful!

If I could live anywhere, it would be in your photographs.

Do you still see all of the world as this beautiful, or is it only the moments you show us?

Usually, I can find a little something about a photograph that is displeasing to the eye, a cacophany to the senses but this photo is an exception. There is nothing about this photo I do not love. Extraordinary work!

I remember crabapples well. My aunt had them in her back yard, but, never as beautiful as this picture. Just stunning.

You came to my school yesterday. You really inspired me to take up photography and start my own photo blog. You made it sound like such a fun job and your pictures are beautiful. This one is my favorite! Thank you!

It seems surreal, it's pure perfection. Color and composition. Wonderful.

This photo reminds me of the following Gandhi quote: "Whatever you do will be insignificant, but it is very important that you do it."

Thank you so much for the moment of beauty ;-)
