HOT Out of the Oven



My husband works as a baker at a local bakery, and he gave me the idea of taking pictures of his HOT out of the oven baked bread for this challenge. Well, I thought it was a great idea, and just loved how the steam looked in this particular shot. =)

Taken with a Nikon D-40, on automatic setting, then cropped. CC welcome.

Even without the steam, this would have been a great shot, but the steam just makes it completely awesome.

Okay, all you people who are wanting to go MAKE bread can make some on my behalf too...because that just isn't going to happen today!

And Katy, if you ever want some fresh yummy bread like that, go see Travis at Great Harvest (same last name as me) I am sure he will hook you up with the "friends and family discount" if ya know what I mean.

GREAT JOB JENNY! This is SOOOOO yummy looking and I love the different aspects you caught on this!

Lindy said...

Whoa! Totally took me looking at this photo a second time a few hours after seeing it the first time to notice that you caught the steam! Nicely done!

By the way, mind baking me a loaf and mailing it, steam included? ;)

The steam does it for me....great jb

Melinda said...

Mmmmmm. Invite me over...now! I like the steam, too. I like how you set it up and the little spot of blue in the corner.

I love this!! That steam is so awesome!! It looks like you could reach out and grab the bread. I think a bigger AP would have blurred out the background- it is a tiny bit distracting.

We had Great Harvest Bread at our wedding reception. It was delish!
There is one about 3 miles up the road too.... I should get a part time job there just to curb my bread cravings. :)
