Winter Berries

Not quite Winter yet but it sure feels like it, so I am entitling this:
Rain-soaked Winter Berries.  



A woman (yes that would be me) was seen at a shopping center recently standing by her parked car, getting just as soaked as the berries in that pouring rain, thinking only another person with a passion for taking photographs would understand.

 My photos were taken with a cell phone and I had difficulty focusing so these are a bit blurry.

Love those reberry bushes, especially in the bleak days of winter/

Ginny said...

The macros are wonderful! I can see the bare trees in the drops...and something else that is red. You have made a lot of beauty from a little berry tree.

You can stand around getting as soaked as you like as far as I'm concerned, those berries are worth it. Well, dry me thinks so. They are lovely.

Felicia said...

winterberry is great for holiday decorating too.

Stephanie said...

You did pretty darn good with those shots. Especially one that can see a reflection under the one berry in the dew drop.

Cathy said...

Oh my Denise - how many more of us are going to stand up and say ..... My name is... and etc...lol
Those are beautiful wet red berries and thank you for sharing. Officially it is summer here but there have been some days where it seems determined not to appear. I'm rugged up today, sitting inside and enjoying 'doing the rounds' to see what bloggers have on show.
Take care
Cathy

Any serious blogger/photographer wouldn't hesitate to take photograph such a pretty things as red berries. Any idea as to what kind they are? I use my iPhone often to take photos and the iPad. They are a bit better than fair and with a bit of editing can very good. Lovely.

George said...

Your first photo is stunning. Although I'm sorry you got wet, I'm delighted you got these wonderful pictures.

Marie Flutterby said...

You have a way with macros. Nice shots. And hey at least you were just taking pics of berries. I'd be in the berries looking for a geocache.

Lovely! Such little things make the day more happy...
