#240 berries galore

240/365 berries galore, originally uploaded by rosipaw.

Yet another Daily Shoot assignment for repetitive patterns today:

Use repetition to create an interesting photograph today. Grids, patterns, or a series of lines will all do the trick.

I’m not a great fan of repetitive routine, but today it led me to this line of rowan trees, heavy with berries. Lots of them everywhere this year, it seems. Some old folk say that an abundance of these berries forecasts a long, cold winter, as birds will need a lot of sustenance to survive. According to another old wisdom, trees can’t carry two heavy burdens in one year – ie. a lot of berries means no heavy snow in winter. Who knows!

Weather forecasts aside, I just love these deep, warm autumn colours – maybe because I was born in this season.

    lots of snow is better than no snow … just hope it isn’t quite as cold as last year.

    I love the rowan. This year there were a lot of tyrni as well 🙂

    I believe we call these mountain ash. I love them for their bright berries. Lots of snow usually means warmer weather. In severe cold it’s too cold to snow!
