Just a touch of white

Posted by
L'explorateur (Vancouver, Canada) on 10 December 2010 in Plant & Nature and Portfolio.

It doesn't snow very often in Vancouver and this November the snow surprised everybody. The red of the maple leaves and the berries was still around. With just a touch of white, for one day.

@Franz: Thank you Franz. You know? I think white and red go well together. And this is probably the only moment of the year when you can see that. Let's enjoy!

Such a wonderful capture of those frozen berries - it looks as we share the same weather - very well done :-)
