A Cold Icee with Cherries

Berries©2009 Chicago Tribune/Alex Garcia

Christmas Eve was a bit busy, so I didn’t have a chance to post this photo from a shoot at Meigs Field, er…Northerly Island. There was a very cool display of ice covering vegetation everywhere you looked, a few images of which you can see in a Trib online photo gallery. In the end I chose this one to post because of the eye-popping red, but also because I keep getting the thought that if trees were able to grow chocolate-covered berries, this scene would make for an interesting picture, but an even better dessert. Some really stunning winter pictures, especially of a tree bent over by ice, can be seen at this Chicago winter classics gallery.
