The thermometer stayed below 50 degrees this morning as we put together Around The Horn. Winter has settled in.

Winter Berries. Nikon D300 with 18-200mm Nikkor at 5mm, f4.8, 1/500 second and ISO 200. Processed in Adobe Camera Raw.

It brings with it some warming holidays and even a few new things at the ends of branches. Like these berries that weigh down their boughs every year at this time.

We thought we'd take the filter off the 18-200mm Nikkor just as we had done with the 43-86mm Nikkor we can't get enough of. The 18-200mm is a more modern zoom than the 43-86mm with autofocus and image stabilization.

It provided a nice break from honing in on focus and holding your breath on each shot as we wandered around the neighborhood hoping to find some signs of winter.

We took a number of shots of these berries but we like this arrangement the best. And we were surprised how a rather strong vignette didn't invade the main scene.

With nature, you take what you can get. That applies to winter as well as berries.
