Foto Finish - Photographer's Choice

This week Barbara made the Foto Finish theme really easy, we can pick any photograph we want.  I say easy, but it's actually harder in some ways with no guidelines.  I could spend the whole morning opening files and highlighting favorite shots.  That's one of the things I really enjoy about doing a Foto Finish post, looking at all the photos and finding those that I've forgotten. 

I decided this week to go with a recent photograph.  Last weekend My Guy and I snuck in a mini fall photography session while Kiddo was helping to decorate for her school's Fun Night.  While enjoying the brilliant fall color in one of our local parks, I came across a tree with the most unusual berries. 


The tree was just loaded with these bright pink and red berries.  Add in the blue skies and the yellow leaves and I had all kinds of photo ops with this one tree.  It took a bit of looking this morning, but I think this is an Eastern Wahoo.  Also known as an Eastern Burning Bush or if you are into the Latin names, an Enonymus atropurpureus

That's it for me this week.  I'm going to go check out all the other photographer choices over at Cat Patches.  Can't wait to see what everyone decided to post this week.

  1. They are unusual berries Kate. It's a lovely photo (that would look great done in black and white for my hallway wall) Can I steal it and have a play with it?

  4. Beautiful image. It is not a tree that I have ever heard of - wonder if we have it here in New Zealand.
