Autumnal Colours Of A Pomegranate
One thing I do miss, living on Zakynthos, is seeing the real colours of autumn. We get an autumn, but it’s more like a second spring, with greenery appearing again after the long hot summer. We also see flowers like crocus and cyclamens popping their pretty little heads out of the stony ground in the hills.
There are some plants that get those distinct colours that we associate with autumn. Plants aren’t my thing, so I couldn’t tell you what they are. One is a beautiful creeper with hand-shaped leaves (if you know what I mean). It’s reds and browns make it quite striking to see.
The other is the pomegranate. The colours of a pomegranate this time of year are a beautiful deep red and browny orange. The fruit really stands out against the green of the bush, inviting birds and insects to feast on its juicy flesh.
Last weekend, when I was wide awake and the rest of the world still slept I took my camera and sneaked out. No dogs, no family. Just me and my camera. Don’t you just love doing that?
My plan was to capture the sun rising through the olive trees for My Sunday Photo. Which I did manage to do, but a pomegranate bush caught my eye too. What was a girl to do? Not being one to shirk a photo opportunity of something so pretty, of course, I had to take a photo.
Then came the dilemma. Which one was I to use for My Sunday Photo?… And the winner is…
My Sunday Photo
Look at the autumnal colours of a pomegranate. How could I not use this photo?
How pretty are the colours of autumn where you live?
