An Apple A Day
Photograph - Photography
It is fall as I load this image today! It is a gorgeous fall day! I was inspired by the falling leaves, pumpkins and apple picking for this photo.
I have made this image look like a painting. It is a photograph altered to look like a Van Gogh painting. I love creating this way.
The original image is of a Honeycrisp apple. It was developed by the University of Minnesota. This variety was developed to grow in cold climates. Not only is it a beautiful color, it is a beautifully sweet tasting apple. Love these apples, to photograph and eat!
The following two blurbs are from the U of MN website.
Two benefits truly set 'Honeycrisp' Apples apart from other apples. The first is their exceptionally crisp and juicy texture. Bite into the cream-colored flesh and the large cells explode with juice in your mouth, carrying a delightful, well-balanced, sub-acid and mildly aromatic flavor.
Excellent Storage Life
The second strong benefit of 'Honeycrisp' Apples is their amazing storage life. Outstanding flavor and texture can be maintained for at least seven months in refrigerated storage without atmosphere modification. Think of it. You can have a great apple to pick and then store, sell or savor for more than half the year!
YUMMY! Enjoy your day!
