What a wonderful perspective in the first photo.
Looks a little scary when they are on a slope.

Interesting picking method.

Where I grew up in Illinois, there were quite a lot of apple orchards. I miss this time of year and smell of freshly picked apples all together in one place. I especially miss the fresh apple cider! It was the best.

Yes it's that time of year!
Nice perspective in the first photo.

It seems to be quite a slope! A busy time for apple farmers here as well. I'm sure my cousin's putting in long hours at the moment.

Apples are one of the treats of the fall season. Love the symmetry in your first photo. Those trees must grow on quite a steep hill.

That is an ingenious method to provide for picking apples. I wonder if all orchards are hand-picked. There's nothing like a good apple!

A tasty time of year, Karl!

I'd love to spend some time wandering around an orchard like this with my camera.

Interesting that the trees are so tall. In New England, the apple trees are pruned so that a human can reach the tops without a ladder, or sometimes with only a short ladder.
