An old bucket and a bag of apples

I found this fabulous old bucket in an antique store in Guildford the other day - so just had to use it for a photography prop!

Photographed in morning light - sprayed the apples with some water to give that fresh just picked look - photographed on an old board - slight pp adjustments.

Don't you just love the crunch of fresh picked apples? 

Or perhaps we should bake an apple tart............

Apples are such a versatile fruit - they can be eaten raw or used in sweet or savoury dishes. For this recipe you cook some apple down to pulp, which you lay in the bottom of the pan, and then lay slices of apple on top and sprinkle with slivered almonds. 

I photographed these in natural light on my back patio.  The plates and spoons are from my mother-in-law's china cabinet.

Serve with cream or icecream - hot or cold - delicious!

or maybe some apple muffins.........sprinkle the top with sugar and cinnamon....
These are photographed in natural morning light coming in through my kitchen window.

Apple muffin and coffee or tea? Would you like butter with that?
