Cool Kamaly. Into the cranberries, but why so green on the amp?
I mean Map.
Thanks, zoe! The cranberries don't actually grow under water. They grow in fields that are flooded to make the fruit float up to be harvested. And once that's done, they drain the field. This place had a festival today, with demonstrations of the harvesting, and tours and rides, including helicopter rides. I'm just beginning to sort through everything, but there's a lot more to post!
That is absolutely amazing Kamaly so glad you explained it all, I thought "What the..." when I first saw it. Great photo. Dianne
I looked at the first pic first and I know a cranberry when I see a 10 million. I've had a million litres of CJ in my time and I HATE IT!!!
Fantastic photo. We have turkey at Christmas but it's not common to have cranberry sauce with it - we just have stuffing and gravy.
Thanks, dianne and Helen ! I first realized how cool the flooded bogs look from the air several years ago when I had to fly over them when frequently taking a small plane for business. So I tracked down this opportunity for the helicopter ride. And I put an aerial view of dry cranberry bogs on BnP's page. I'll probably post the more 'educational' shots there.
Excellent and I see your shadow! Wow!
Thanks, jean - it was pretty cool to fly over it, though just a very short spin around over the fields.
Just had a meal in a restaurant the other day, had turkey and dressing. There was also cranberry sauce. Too bad March isn't a big month for cranberries... or is it?
Still loving this photo!
Hi Jean - thanks again! I'm only just getting back to e-mails from when I was on vacation - so sorry so late! (and rats. Wish was still on that vacation!) We'll all just have to wait for another 6 months..I think the only fresh cranberries this time of year would have to be from New Zealand or Chile if they even have them in those places. They have blueberries now, seems they should have cranberries, too. hmmm.
Hi kamaly ! İnteresting jop and different crop . Greetings , Barbaros
Very nice, are you in the helicopter?
A very late 'Thanks' barbarosakpinar!
And a timely Thanks Cathy ! Yes - this was at a cranberry harvest fair, and they offered short helicopter rides over the cranberry bogs. It was a perfect day for it!
Glad to see this one up and running again.
Thanks Di !
