Little Bunch of Leaves on the Lake

Little Bunch of Leaves on the Lake

I found this little bunch of leaves near the shore. Not really sure if it was attached to something under the snow or if it fell off. I plunked down on my belly and shot it with my macro lens wide open to get the shallow depth of field but with sharp details in the focused area. The low glancing light from the setting sun lit it perfectly. Nature has such detail and beauty, even in the windswept cold of winter.

I was out shooting with Dusty the other day and we came across the street man and the leaf was very near him. We had the same idea, but Dusty wasn’t as keen on belly-flopping for the shot. Yes, I did move the leaf into position and yes, I flopped in the middle of the path to take this photo.

I never grow tired of the effects of my f1.4 lens, the extremely shallow depth of field creates an amazing contrast. Unlike the ‘faux miniature’ effect that people do in Photoshop with areal photos the bokeh from this lens is real and beautiful.
