Day 6 of 365 has been a long dreary rainy day. I prefer to photograph outdoors so today was a challenge to think of something fun to photograph. I walked by my hutch and saw these leaves laying inside with my antique glassware. We picked them up in Washington state a few years ago because they were huge. This one is larger than my hand. I propped it up against a dark blue glass plate just under the hutch light. I shot in Priority mode with no flash and hand held. I like it, especially the texture of the veins. The only editing was to crop just a bit.
*note* if you click on the image you can view the original size, the textures and detail are cool!
