Following the best summer for quite a few years we have seen large quantities of all kind of wild berries this autumn… Blueberries, raspberries, rowanberries!

Rowanberries are very popular with the birds, and some say the migratory birds will delay their departure in seasons with lots of berries…

This year we could find rowanberries even in mountain areas, which does not happen every year.

I hardly see anyone picking berries anymore, in spite nothing tastes like homemade jam from wild berries… My personal favourite is raspberry jam!

An image showing a full view of the rowan is uploaded to workshop!

Hi Pablo.
Very pretty interception hereof typically autumn fruit.Beautiful colours,very good composition and sharpness.I like it.
TFS and greetings.

Hi Pablo,
Very nice capture.The colors are so natural.It's usually difficult to capture the original colors of plants like these but you've done a great job here.

Look yummy to me, Pablo.
What a healthy bunch of them, so rich in colour!
Can one eat these berries?
This picture would be a sure winner for an advertising campaign ;-)!
Superb capture with imaginative use of the existing light.
Thanks and take care.

Hermoso disparo con el que has inmortalizado estos frutos. El color es perfecto, la luz y la nitidez son estupendas. Una muy agradable composición. Buen punto de vista.
Saludos, JL.

Hi Pablo,
Love the reflection of the sunlight on the berries. It makes them pop out perfectly. Great sharpness and colors and a lovely composition. I assume they are all gone by now in Norway.

Hi Pablo,

Hello Pablo,
I find that red berries are one of the hardest thing to capture, and you did it just perfectly.
Wonderful DOF excellent sharpness and superp colors make this a wonderful composition to look at.

love the colorful shot of the berries! Great DOF , nice light and shadows on them..they look like a bunch of mini apples...:o)
Nice shot!

Donna :o)

P.S. I have a cupboard full of homemade rasberry/strawberry jam...:o)

Bonjour Pablo,
très belle composition. Les couleurs sont suberbes, il y a beaucoup de relief sur cette photo. C'est simple et beau, j'aime beaucoup.
Merci du partage

Hi Pablo,
A really big bunch of berries! Colors, details and dof are excellent and the picture the one to mitigates the black & while snow forest!
Best regards mf,
José M.

hello Pablo,
these colors make us a little forget that the winter approaches with great step. The details are very good.

Hello pablo !
Much more colorful thqn your snow pictures ! :-) The color of these berries is wonderful, as well as the warm light thqt is shining on them. Beautiful composition and POV, excellent details on the berries. I agree with you, there are less and less people picking up wild berries, in France too, but I never miss the wild blackberries, they taste so much better thant the domesticated ones ! :-)Very well done !

hi firend,
superb light and sharpness! Beautiful point of view and excellent composition! A very nice picture in general! Take care Ana:)

Wow! I dint know there was such a rowanberry year this year! Anyway, they dont grow this plentiful up in the north, unless the conditions are very good. I`ve heard a saying that an autumn with lots of rowanberries is a sign of a winter with a lot of snow... well, we`ll see if that is correct soon. The winter has started early up here, so maybe its true..!?
I really liked the workshop version with the whole rowanberry tree. The colours are fantastic!

Hi Pablo,

A very appealing picture, these berries look very delicious and tasty. And I agree,
there's nothing like homemade jam, although I have to admit, I never made it myself :_)
You made a beautiful composition here with good
bright colours, excellent background and sharpness.
Thanks for sharing!

Greetings, Nel

Hi Pablo!
Your sparkling rowanberry can atract both birds and tracknaturalists. Sharp focus combined with shallow dov concentrates attention on lighting and color.

Hehe.. I see you like the rowanberries as well:) Looks like your is more popular then mine though:P

Looks very good. and the DOF works very well. Nice shadows and a good POV.


Bonjour Pablo
Une excellente photo ,les couleurs sont justes et parfaitements exposées ainsi que les détails de ces merveilleux petits fruits ... Félicitations pour la belle composition.

Merci et bravo...JP

these are truly great shots..not just the sharpness but the fine grain effect..ie no grain..
to get this smoothness i usually have to resort to noise ware..etc..
bright and inviting to our feathered friends..and a heads up for a hard winter...
nice grouping and full of interest...the b/g suitably handled to make oof

Hi Pablo. Good colourful berries showing a new scene in this mountain area. I haven't heard of Rowenberries before so it is good to hear about them. Good clarity. Murray.

Hola Pablo, Today I am picking berries!
And a delicious crop I have so far! I like the colours we see here, of the mountain ash. They are a favorite of robins and jays alike in my country esp. in the wintertime when other food may not be as obvious. And I like them too, esp. when presented like this. Good compo, great colour. J.

Hi Pablo,
Splendid shot of this mouth-watering Rowanberries. Very neat image and sharp details. The colour is so inviting, these must be very delicious. Perfect lighting and focus and the exposure is absolutely amazing. I like the light and shadow play here and your POV to portray them. Very nicely composed. Kudos.

Hi Pablo,

A nice image of the rowanberry, the photo has a good composition, sharpness and nice colors. Thanks for sharing.


Hi Pablo,

Hello Pablo,
hope you dont mind me coming in agai n and again.
You should know by now that your shots are lovely and atteact the eyes very much. You should also know that your comment is subtle, if the reader analyse it carefully.
These fruits are lovely and very bright.
in my country normally it would indicate some elements of being poisonous.
Look delicious and appetizing.
Excellent compo and excellent use of lights.
