Winter does not offer much color but there are a few plants that offer up bright berries like this. I assume that this it nature’s way of attracting birds to come and spread the seeds around.
These bushes are planted along the Roswell River Walk by the Chattahoochee River. On a rainy, foggy day, the light is very subdued. I was also attracted by the water drops hanging from the berries. The one difficulty here (besides the lack of light) was the proximity to the road. Cars pass by fairly often and kick up a breeze each time. This made for a minor challenge since I was shooting at a slower speed and the branches would sway with each bit of wind. I though it was worth the effort though.
I added a border called “Martha” in Perfect Effects to frame the scene just a little.
