Oak Leaf Trio

Autumn colours are beginning to pepper the woods in my area of the UK. But the oak trees remain predominantly green. On a walk last weekend I spotted the occasional twig of oak leaves knocked down by the wind, and on these small branch terminals the colours of Autumn were fully developed.

All it took was a little judicious pruning of unwanted leaves, lining the required leaves up to become translucent with late afternoon sun, and the shot was set.

About LensScaper

Hi - I'm a UK-based photographer who started out 45+ years ago as a lover of landscapes, inspired by my love of outdoor pursuits: skiing, walking and climbing. Now retired, I seldom leave home without a camera and I find images in unexpected places and from different genres. I work on the premise that Photography is Art and that creativity is dependent on the cultivation of 'A Seeing Eye'. I'm not averse to manipulating images to produce derivatives that may sometimes be far removed from the original.
