Seems the latest photo-fad is to subject phone camera snaps with an Instragram filter. Nothing wrong with this of course, the filters often impart a great feel to a picture. They do however appear rather similar after a while with a bleached out, colour faded 1970′s look. Not wanting to buck a trend these three photos, from the Hush Heath apple orchard, have been given my take on the style. Conjured in photoshop rather than in-camera though.Hush Heath is the estate that produces the Balfour Brut Rosé sparkling wine. Until my visit last week I was unaware they have extensive apple orchards, in addition to vine plantings of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, and produce a still apple juice under the ‘Jake’s Tree Pure Apple Juice’ brand.


  1. Hark you and your desaturated vintage style pics! Down with the kids, you are! ;o) Personally (as you know!!) I am too addicted to vibrant colour but have had fun playing with photoshop to try out this look. Nice snaps :)
