There's something so appealing about a deep red at this time of year, as we approach the Winter Solstice in the northern hemisphere. I think it's because of the diminishing light, but I'm not sure why I'm so drawn to red as opposed to other bright colors. This is a re-edit from my archives; experimenting with Smart Sharpen in place of my usual USM.
