Apple Tree in Winter

dads-apple-tree

My father took this photo of the apple tree behind the house I grew up in sometime in the early 1970s (if it was later in the 70s, I would have built a ski jump on that stump). Today (January 6th) is his birthday and though he’s not here to celebrate it, it’s nice for me to think about him looking out the kitchen window, seeing the beauty of this scene, grabbing the camera and stepping out to take a picture with his Nikon.

Happy birthday, dad.

    Andy,
    I think that rope hanging from the tree is the one that broke while I was climbing it and gave me a terrific nosebleed! (The knot came down right square on my nose.) Nice to see this image – brings back good memories of childhood and of your Dad.
    All the best,
    Michael

    It probably is the same one – after that fated incident (which I had totally forgotten) we moved it to the tree by the barn.

    Thanks for commenting and Happy New Year – I’ll be seeing your dad later this week.

    Wow, Andy. Cool Picture. Love the composition.

    I am going to send this link to my Mom so she can enjoy it too.

    HBD Al!

    Yeah – it’s one of my favorites. I wish I had a better print of it. Thanks for dropping by!
