In search of colour - 3


Red berries - some sort of a pyracantha (firethorn) shrub, I think - make a bright foreground, with Saltaire's United Reformed Church tower behind.

  1. It is not just that they are in the foreground that make them so stunning, but their positioning at the very bottom of the image gives it such power.
    Happy 2012 Jenny.

  4. Oh, I am searching for color too...We have had very little snow this year, which has been nice in one aspect, but the dreary gray can be tiring too. Seriously, I can't wait until spring! The splash of red in this photo is wonderful!

  5. The blackbirds are busily stripping my pyrocantha.

  6. Well done, Jenny. Placing the bush at the bottom (but not skimping on how much you show) and then blurring the background creates a fine effect.

  7. The berries are a vivid, sharp contrast to the neutrals. Your depth of field is very nice also. I think you and your camera are getting on quite well!

    Best wishes for a great 2012!

    Bises,
