Reds may coordinate with summer flowers and fade into the autumn chorus of leaves, but in winter rose hips are like a beacon in the snow.
The snow was falling as I walked, and when I found and studied them I wanted to capture the snow and cold and wind with movement and blur and the contrast of the bright red against the white snow. Below you can even see snow falling as I photographed the rose hips with the woods behind them.
These tiny rose hips are from a wild rose that grows along with its close relatives, raspberries and blackberries, at the edges of woods.. . . . . . .
