The Holly and the Ivy

By chase
Holly and Ivy from my garden with a little Artistic Licence Wink
The Thrushes and Blackbirds won't take long to strip the berries from my Holly Tree !

Lit by available daylight, the other bits and bobs are from a packet of Potpourri I bought from the supermarket and they really are this colour.

I really am suffering with a lack of inspiration atm, hopefully it will pass sooner rather than later.

Thanks for taking the time to drop in.
Constructive critique and mods welcome.

You are not alone in the motivation arena. I am umotivated to do anything much, let alone photography SadSad
Mind you, on a day like today when it is cold, wet and dark, I am going to forgive myself Grin

Nice bright wintery feel to it.

Like you and Fiona, inspiration is a bit thin on the ground in my house!

Such delicate prettiness. I wish my lack of inspiration was as beautiful as yours. Smile

Thanks peeps.
Many thanks to Somnath and Chris, great to have your UAs.

I hate it when I can't 'see' my next image in my head, it's driving me nuts but, it seems like I am not alone Sad

Nice berries, Janet, but I have to admit to preferring the variety known as Halle.Wink
Inspiration, motivation? What are these foreign things you speak of?

Malc, suffering from the same missing ingredients as you...

The red catches the eye Janet and the Ivy achieves a great shape in the frame.
Know how you feel I'm trawling my hard drives for images.

Beautiful seasonal image Janet, with a cold and frosty feel. I like the shape of the ivy and the holly berries add a welcome touch of warmth to the cool colours.
Inspiration certainly NOT lacking here Smile.
