persimmons

Last February we planted three more trees to bring the grand total in our tiny orchard up to seven!  One of the older persimmon trees is covered in fruit.





If you are wondering, the first photo was taken with the sun to my right which resulted in a blown out sky. The second photo was taken with the sun to my back which resulted in the blue sky.


Oh, and Mason's photo made it into the voting round at i heart faces! Click here if you'd like to vote for him (#39).

  5. Oh such beautiful shots! I love the last one, awesome!

    Thanks for the tips on the sun position. I don't think I've ever paid much attention, but it sure does make a difference.

  7. Lovely shots - I've never eaten a persimmon, must look for them in the grocery store (although I bet straight off the tree is far superior!)

  12. I've never tasted one of those fruits before. Great advice on getting a blue sky - sometimes I struggle with that normally because it's impossible to get to the other side of the subject and I end up underexposing and taking a raw image aswell so I can alter it later in photoshop.

  15. Wow, that is one healthy looking tree! Persimmon trees grow wild a lot around here. My mother-in-law makes a persimmon pudding that everyone goes nuts for. Everyone except me. I just can't make myself like that stuff!

    Beautiful photos, as always! :)

  29. My very first favorite fruit as a child was persimmons! My grandma said that I couldn't eat enough of it. We don't seem to get as many of it these days, though.

    Off to vote for Mason!
