Snow, berries and grating


My favorite part of this photo is the focussing effect of the droplet.

The droplet is beautiful and the red really pops. Cheers!

Oh, yeah! Ha! How good is that! I guess that could be explained by my son with physics ... let's not listen to him. It is just totally beautiful, Z.

A lovely macro shop! Love the contrast between the berries and the snow.

Thank you all for your comments!

Julie: But physics is fun and enhances the overall experience! Thank you so much for the award, but I'm going to be a party pooper and not forward it on... I hope you don't mind terribly! I would like to say that I treasure your visits and comments and I get a lot out of your Sydney haiku blog.

Wellingtonia: The leaves of the Skimmia japonica subsp. reevesiana look much bigger than the berries in comparison to the ones in my photo. I think the ones in my photo could be Cotoneaster Dammeri Coral Beauty or something similar.

Hi Z

Is this cotoneaster your plant ?
Be careful with it.
It is one of the dangerest plants for the "Feuerbrand".

Cotoneaster can be a host plant to that bacterial killer of appel-, pear- and other fruittrees.

Wellingtonia: No, we rent an apartment on the 2nd floor so we have no garden. If we ever do have a garden, we'll stay away from Cotoneaster!
