Monday berries

 
There are these lovely berries on the tree outside my office window.  I wanted a photo with the snow perched on top, and although it has snowed 23 of the first 25 days in December, it didn't snow this day.  So, to make the macro a little more interesting, I added Pioneer Woman boost action and Kim Klassen texture (Silent Night 2, I think).  Then I brushed away some of the texture to emphasized the berries again. 

Not bad for a first try.  I may also play some more and add some text to make a card or two out of it. That is my cold weather project this week.
