Black Cherries

What’s not to like about cherries???  There are many more cherries in the original picture.  In fact as a whole, it was the one that caught my eye out of all the ones I took.  Then I started cropping and cropping until I came into just these 5.  I like the tight grouping and the intensity and range of values of the reds.  I love the shine of cherries against the flat of the leaves.  I even found my reflection in the foremost cherry when I really looked and used my imagination.  I also like the sunshine coming in to touch just a bit.  Oh it’s a few months before we’ll see these here….image

Oh man I love cherries. Cherry pie, cherry ice cream,
cherries jubilee and cherry colored looms! ;->
Beautiful shot. I can see a little tapestry in that can you? Of course I don't have the skills to pull it off, but I can imagine what it would look like.

Oh thanks....now I'm hungry for cherries! It will be months before there are decent cherries in our stores.

The sun on those cherries is really beautiful.
