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.

  7. 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.

  12. 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

  23. 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.
