Mother Nature Decorates
It was a drift of red berries on woodland shrubs that caught my eye. Bright and red, those berries had a "knock your socks off" effect against the gray woods.
I made a u-turn and pulled out my camera. Got the shot framed and then I saw, in the viewfinder, the whitest birch and a little Charlie Brown type pine tree.
There it was -- the reddest red, a little green tree, and pure white. No bows. No ribbons. No baubles.
Just Mother Nature at work, decorating the woods for the holidays, on this stretch of Michigan highway.
