Winter berries, South Shields

Chilled baby oranges?

Found these berries, probably belonging to the same pyracantha that I photographed a few weeks ago, mow providing a vivid contrast in colour between the warm glow of the orange and the cool crispness of the snow and ice. The plant seems to be growing wild in the Chichester area of South Shields, but it is very hardy and will last for many years.

Camera details: Pentax K100D, 82 mm lens (macro), 1/910 second, f8, iso 800

  3. Fantastic shot! We had a similar situation with grapes a couple of years back. The grapes are left on the vine until they freeze preparatory for ice wine. At that time the irrigation system sprang a leak and what an awesome site the grapes and vines made, trailing icycles and all.

  6. great picture!
    I wish we’d get some snow, but all we’ve been having is cold, cold, cold, weather and then it warms up just enough above freezing and rains. It quits raining and the temp at night drops back on down to around 20 or less. My house would stay warmer if it did snow, it’d help insulate the roof more. and we could play in the snow, not that I want a Blizzard everyday or nothing, but some snow d be nice
