An old plum variety, the Reine Claude, greenish yellow in color and a true feast 2nd half of August when ripe. Fresh sweet, aromatic and honeyed in taste. The "Reine" of plums, named after Queen Claude, Queen of France 1514 -1524.
The Reine Claude are shown here in a classic setting, in a green glazed earthenware bowl with ear.
In the foreground on the wooden table another set of plums in a silk cloth in blue/green. In the background a threatening sky as we so often see 2nd half of August as a change from warm high summer weather.

Time stands still.......A winter's day in pastel shades, a foggy spring's morning, summer's rest in August, the autumn: transience in colour, smell and light! From an early age, I have been fascinated by the seasons. In 2006 I got more time and by attending courses at FRB Photography I gradually became completely fascinated by photography and I have continued to develop myself. The fact that I live in a beautiful rural area of Friesland has certainly contributed to a preference for photographing landscapes, capturing the special moments. Time does not stand still, the light, the sky and the atmosphere are constantly changing! A few years ago I also started photographing still lifes, the time-honoured craft of composing with light and form. Life literally stands still for a moment. An idea arises, the execution and the fine tuning, is mainly about the art of omission.
