A Cold Leaf
This past weekend I was able to get out briefly for a hike over at Chesapeake Bay Environmental Center (post forthcoming) for a little exercise and photography. The day before I had seen Mike Powell’s photography blog post on his “Dancing Leaf” photo conveying winter, and I was inspired on such a simple winter photo that I would have never thought to envision myself.
So, as I was working my way through some snow on my hike snapping away at the birds, I came upon a wide open area where all these leaves were jutting out from little drifts here and there. Mike’s photo instantly came to mind and I began searching for my leaf-op to capture. It wasn’t so easy at first to ‘see & find’ my vision. Then I saw and said, you’re the one.
An oak leaf, I believe. But I’m not so good on the plants and trees, so please correct me if I’m wrong.
Thank you, Mike, for the inspiration, I had fun with it and enjoyed learning to expand my photography vision. 🙂
And I hope ya’ll enjoyed this simple shot with me too!
