    I had this idea of stacking up all the honey jars and taking a picture with the sun shining through. It turns out that there are way too many to stack, so I just did a portion. This is about 1/3 of our harvest. The honey still has a lot of tiny bubbles in it, so it is not clear except the bottom 1/4. that happened when I strained it through jam/jelly filter bags. A big thanks to everyone who's helped me get started on this wonderful path.

    quite pretty.... your picture also suggest why I only place labels on the lids of my honey jars.... why would you want to mask all that pretty sunlight beaming thru the jewel like content of the jar?

    Very nice. Like tecumseh has alluded to, if you ever find yourself at a farmers market selling your bounty, if they give you an option as to where to set your table, always try and have the sun behind you, shining through those jars! :wink:

    These are pretty much the photos we use for marketing our honey... Almost out as we only had our first original hive that is in its second season. This fall we are going into winter with seven, God willing we hope to have seven next spring and a good 2013 harvest. Nice subject :grin:

    IMG_0805.jpg IMG_0813.jpg Here is our honey(we only pulled a few frames leaving the rest for the bees for the winter). The 1st picture shows it right after I put it into jars(hand extraction, lots of bubbles). The second is a couple weeks later after the bubbles settled...very light and tasty(alfalfa, clover, fireweed, various wildflowers all around us). Halley

    I can only guess at the source, I'd say clover and wild flowers.

    Yes, neat background pics of San Fran CharlieB!
    Hart: now I see what you were talking about when you said the honey was slightly yellow when we were all in awe of the white honey...the second pic is a better representative...

    First bit of wax from the solar wax melter... was going to bead our foundationless frames with it, but since we liked the random Heart Shape. WE save it for our display...
