More Reds of Winter

I seem to be especially conscious of red this winter and more specifically, sources of red other than cardinals. In this case, the red is from wild rose hips (?). Encased in ice, these round dots of red created an amazing contrast to the otherwise monochromatic brush.

This is an image I made while the freezing rain was still falling and so I had to be conscious of the potential harm to gear. For this reason I opted to use an Olympus OM-D EM-5 camera with the Olympus 60mm macro lens. Both camera and lens are weather-proof according to Olympus, and I have come to believe it!

    I know this is picky, but this is the 3rd time I’ve come back to this image & I still have the same (strong) reaction. I think the contrast of the red vs everything else (color, shape, pattern) is quite striking (much to let the eyes linger in there), but want to crop along the LH branch about 1/3 of the way in. Square format?
