still life with mirabelles. Explore F.P.

    Newer Older

    On holiday in the Cévennes region in the South of France, our tent was partly shaded by a mirabelle tree. Still enjoying their wonderful sweet taste and fragrance in our kitchen at home, I'm glad I picked a large bowlful.

      Oh my! This made my jaw drop!
      Absolutely stunning.
      Love the tags - the wasps here in Holland have a thing for my plums!

      Mirabellen...oh yum!

      Beautifully captured, and a lovely bowl from one of my favourite regions in France!
      With any luck we might be heading in that direction in 2 weeks time...yes, camping!

      People are always asking me what they are.
      When I say mirabelles, as they call them en France, they are non the wiser.
      They are called cherry plums in uk i think and in latin, Prunus cerasifera.
      They've been very good this year

      Such an appealing off-center composition and side lighting—it's not the bowl, it's your arrangement and shooting! (fav)
