After a very hot summer, Hawthorn used very high temperatures to produce lots of fruits.
If you like to read some notes about Hawthorn (Crataegus oxycantha) or see how this tree looked in spring, take a look to this shot
As there are so many fruits, I'm thinking to try some old recipes with this fruit, like marmalade.:-)
Have a good WE!

Hi Jose,
Wow, a lovely warm and summery picture. Excellent colours and light, and I really like the composition. The way the berries from left to right are more out of focus until the blurry background. A very pleasing image to just sit and look at, a really nice shot. The Spring shot is beautiful also, I will return when I have more smileys :-)

Hello Jose,

You give me an inspiration to go out and photograph some berries today, this seems to be a very fine late summer Sunday!
Well framed, pleasant macro work!

Hi jose

Really nice macro of the Hawthorn berries.Wonderful range of colours .Nicely presented .TFS


Hola Jose !
I love this picture because of the warm colors, reminds me of a hot summer atmosphere - in France summer has ended at the beginning of August, from that day we only had rain and wind. Composition and DOF are wonderful, I like your BG of blurry fruits. Very well done !

WOW yours are red already...

great lighting and composition and excellent DOF to keep the BG OOF but obvious as to what it is.

Hola Jose!
I like your small fruits - the bush-tree of Hawthorn is very popular on the Balkans too. In my country people are collected and drying them for hearth-strenghthening tea.

Nice warm colors and light Jose. A pleasing frame and easy on the eye..Looks great in the thumbnail too ;)
Well done mf.

Hello Jose,
lovely composition. You have captured them in a beautiful soft light. They look good enough to eat which of course you can't.
best wishes

Otra bonita estampa veraniego-otoñal. Veo que el C. oxicantha tiene los frutos algo más globosos que el C monogyna, el más común por aquí, cuyos frutos son algo más alargados. Me gusta el fondo naranja, supongo que de otros frutos, que da mucha calidez a la foto. Las flores se usan aquí como tranquilizante, sustitutivo de la tila, de hecho la gente les llama tilos.

Hello Jose
Your light is very different to mine and the berries are not quite so ripe.
It is a lovely framing i love the sharp and soft contrast..it suggests to me the berries are almost edible. A very well planned shot sir.
tfs and best regards

Hi Jose.
I like your choice of subject for picture and skillful realization of the idea. Sharp and blurred fruits and leaves are looked perfectly one next to other. Very nice and pleasant to eyes colour palette, excellent framing and cropping. Perfect job and my kind wishes.
