fields of berries

By canadamon  
Hey there, been away from the site for a few days taking pics , we've had some good weather so made the most of it, allthough this is a shot i took a about 5 months ago....
This is a cranberry field that has just been flooded to collect the fruit.....Cranberries are grown on creeping shrubs or vines on the ground in dykes then when they are deep red and ripe the fields are flooded and the berries float to the surface and collected by special machines... Cranberries are the third most valuable crop to British Columbia and as you can see makes for quite the sight....
Hope you like it all the best Damon.....

Lovely. I thought it looked very exotic in the thumbnail. I didn't know cranberries didn't grow on trees!
