Snow Storm and Mountain Ash Berries
Here is a follow-up image to the photo I posted earlier today. This is a shot of some mountain ash trees that was taken just after the weather switched from calm to not-so-calm. As I mentioned in my post this morning, the day started off very peaceful but quickly switched to stormy weather as a strong east wind came seemingly out of nowhere and was accompanied by heavy snowfall. This photo was taken just as the heavy snow was beginning to fall from the sky. I loved how the snow helped "soften" the background and also helped to make the red berries "pop" and jump out even more from the surrounding trees. There seems to be an abundance of mountain ash berries this year, and while they are beautiful I find it difficult to capture a really nice photo of them. I've taken quite a few photos of the berries this year and this is one of the few shots of them that I like.
