Pomegranate (Punica Granatum) - Detailed Image

Pomegranate (Punica Granatum) - Detailed Image [enlarge]

This detailed image of a Pomegranate or Punica granatum is yet another weird still part of my collection of totally irrelevant shots in this Barcelona blog supposed to deal with Barcelona pictures. I consider that the title of my page should be regarded as two isolated words. Barcelona and/or Photoblog or even a third split, photo blog. After you muse for a millisecond on my nonsensical jumble of words and before leaving you alone with the photograph and the comprehensive wikipedia link, notice the etymology of the word: "pomegranate" derives from Latin pomum ("apple") and granatus ("seeded"). Now go ahead, pluck it.


  1. Carlos - I usually don't care for nature photography. The subject has been beaten to death. This photo is different and original. It's an exotic fruit, something we don't see often (at least here in the US) that looks like it is about to burst. Good use of depth of field, too.

  2. Because I've enjoyed your blog so much, you've been TAGGED to reveal 8 random things about yourself; see my Flagstaff Daily Photo for details on the 10/23 post!

  3. I agree with strangetastes... this is not a tree people see in North America. We sometimes forget about -where- fruit comes from if it doesn't grow in our backyard (or live in our groceries). Awesome picture.
