Valley Views: Local photographers aim their cameras outdoors
Route 5, South Deerfield

A little ice coating on trees makes for a dazzling image. On a day in December, I was pleased to find these berries on a tree near the employee entrance of Yankee Candle. The bright red color of the berries glistened with melting ice as I left work in the early afternoon. A photograph was in order.
This image was captured with a tripod-mounted digital SLR camera and a short telephoto macro lens.
