Hi Anton. I like this as it is very clear and colours are true to life. We don't have it here but the fruit looks good if you are able to pick them without being wounded. TFS. Murray.

Hallo Anton!
Here I must get in touch with you! I live in "Schwarzdornweg"
(Schwarzdorn = Blackthorn; it's fruits, which you show here, are called "Schlehe" in German, you know my email-adress ;-)?
A wonderful sharp picture - and I must think of the delicious liqueur one can produce out of them.
Greetings, and a nice Sunday!
