I love autumn, and I love apples. I set these up on hessian with some autumn leaves and photographed them today…. and then the cat came along and decided she improved the composition ….. hmm… what do you think? Taken with Panasonic Lumix FT1 compact.

I live in the beautiful Adelaide Hills of South Australia which are a constant inspiration to me in my photography. As an observer of nature and the world around around me, I find many subjects here which I try to portray in an artistic and interesting way. Please contact me if there are any of my images you wish to purchase or otherwise use.

    This is great Barb. Don’t know what you did to it but the light, textures and richness of colour is wonderful. As for the cat well…I guess she wanted to be in on the action too.

  • Thanks Kathy! I set this up outside in early morning light with a diffuser sheet to soften a little – then added a little Topaz filtering in photoshop after. The morning light was lovely and I was up early to enjoy it, and so was kitty!
