Abstraction in Nature
I have heard photographers say over and over that some of the most interesting things to make images of are right in your own backyard. Well, maybe my own front yard. We have a pair of trees in our yard that are getting ready to turn colors for fall. As I looked around the yard I realized that the ugly leaves on a weed-like plant on the other side of the yard actually had a lot of color to it. So, time to break out the 60mm macro lens and the tripod. The color was pretty saturated because of the overcast skies we had, but to give the image a bit more pop I kicked in a bit of side-light from a fill flash.
