Not my favourite colour or one that I'm usually drawn to, but a friend recently sent me a shawl in gorgeous shades of red so I am alert to the charms of this fiery assault on the senses.
Fire, blood, danger - all elemental and arresting, for there is little calm or comfort in red. Yet this cluster of berries, the sun shining and the remembrance of green in the turning leaves compelled me to rummage for my phone and take the picture.
Mindful of the positive, I note the huge contribution to humanity of the relief organisations The Red Cross and Red Crescent, Blood banks offering life-saving transfusions, and my red glasses case - a must-have life saver for computer and close work.
Today I value red.
