“Surely the apple is the noblest of fruits.”

~ Henry David Thoreau, Wild Apples


Yesterday afternoon it got dark and storm blew in. Having spent the morning doing housework I was looking forward to some photography time so the passing of the light was disappointing. I decided to see what I could do with what little light remained anyway. It turned out that I really liked the dark and moody look of my photos–especially after applying one of Kim Klassen’s Lightroom presets. (Have I mentioned that I’ve just started a new class with Kim called The Studio 2.O?)

After playing with photos for a while I used the apples to make an apple crisp. Oh how cozy it was with the smell of the baking apples and the deluge of rain coming down outside. Just a wonderful afternoon!

Today, weather permitting, I’ll do a bit of garden cleanup.


I’m a writer, reader, and creative. I thought by now I’d have things figured out, but I keep coming up with more questions. I think that’s okay. I’m here most mornings pondering ordinary things and the thin places where faith intersects.
  1. It sounds like just the kind of day September was meant to be.

    1. It was. Just perfect.

  2. I really love this dark and stormy look, too. It has depth to it. Storms are so much fun, so cozy and powerful and wild all at once.

    1. I’m having fun with the dark and moody look right now. Nice to see you again, Lucinda!

  3. Love this look too Linda. Those presets are so great!
