“Autumn is the mellower season, and what we lose in flowers we more than gain in fruits.” ― Samuel Butler
I’m not really sure what kind of berry this is. They look a bit like cranberries, but I suspect that is not the case. They came as a colour ‘filler’ in a bouquet of flowers I purchased for our Thanksgiving table. Of course, I had to pull it apart and make photos of the various blossoms, some of which have already been shared here.
In any case, I thought they were interesting and liked the way the light played off the berries themselves. If anyone has an idea what they might be, I’d be happy to be informed.

Though a few have seen better days, these roses still offered me an opportunity to continue experimenting with lighting on these studio shots. I thought the white might pose a challenge but they turned out beautifully, still retaining the soft pink/cream colour perfectly.
I’m finding it’s a matter of controlling the light and keeping it just bright enough to light the subject while keeping the background dark. In this case I also included the vase for a little more interest.
