Poring Over the Picture

Colorful berries covered in snow are a favorite subject of mine in early winter. I think it is something about all the contrasts that exist simultaneously: the vibrant berry color and the white snow; the contrast between the berries’ warmth and the icy cold. Getting up close brings the crystal texture of the ice into focus against the smooth skin of the berries. When the snow flies it’s a great time to head out for some cool photographs.
