Love this series of photos! The dead foliage against the bright red berries in contrast with the fencing is very dramatic!

The beautiful berries of winter! Thank you for sharing the beautiful views of these lovely red berries!
Love the pop of red. A lot of depth in your images.I always prefer images that seem to have this.

Thanks Karen, I try to cheer up a bit, since we had very greyish days in and I had a week long travel with more images, will keep posting this week

Thanks Liz, I love berries too, they can be so bright and attract so much attention!

Donna, I like to play with color as volume in the foreground, is not always easy, I hope I succeeded here

Hello Greggo, me too. Thanls for visiting
Just took a number of "red" photos myself as I was out walking in the area nature preserves. Always nice to see the red, especially looks great with the white of snow we have here. NIce photos today. jack
Gorgeous reds. Are there berries on the dogwood--is that what the red is?

Carolyn, the cornus had no berries, it was the naked branches so red that in the distance they seemed on fire!

Thanks Jack, I think is one of the joyful moments in grey January, taking these images!

I love the way those reds pop in the winter landscape. There are lots of red winterberries (Ilex verticillata) enlivening the landscape in Maine these days. And outside my bedroom window, the mock orange (Philadelphus) is a study of red twigs and white snow. -Jean

There is a better appreciation for 'color' during the Winter! It's just so beautiful to have a shot of red catch your eye!! Thanks for the inspiration!

Shyrlene, indeed red in winter is "the color" and you can say that it can have the effects of chocolate: stimulating ! thanks for visiting.
