335Days ShezPhoto #31 Wild Rose Hips

Rose Hips from Native Wild Roses

The Wild Rose hips are very tiny, about the size of holly berries. The brilliant red of the late summer blooms are a delightful contract to the aged black hips of the early spring bloom. The hips hang on their reddish winter branches against the soft colors of the dried grass makes for a pleasant image.

By selecting and cropping a small portion of the original it allows the eye to focus on only a few berries. All the dried grasses and hundreds of berries was a beautiful visual image in person, once flattened to a two-dimensional photo it was too much of a good thing. Even this shot tends toward too busy.

This was such an awesome morning to take photos, if it hadn’t been 27 degrees and me with no gloves, I would have hung around in the wetlands area much longer. My fingers had gone beyond hurting so when my and feet started to hurt it was time to come in.

This morning I caught a glimpse of a very vintage vehicle. The new camera’s files are too big to be opened at work with my software here. It’s a weekend project,  so look for it next week.
