Solo Leaf

These large leaves littered the lawn out in Rappahannock earlier this fall; they'd just fallen and were still soft (and very fuzzy) but dried by evening.

Great tones/texture... :-)

I need to learn how to do things like that.

I think leaf veins always grab the interest, Chris, and the comp here is especially nice. Great idea for the background too. #9868932

I've always been amazed at the intricacy of nature and how each leaf has it's distinctive textures. This is a favorite, but I'm having trouble picking my "favorite" for the month - you have too many I adore! Good luck and great work as always!!! #9920787
