Taken yesterday on a snapping mission with MikeH. The sky was totally washed out so inventiveness was called for and close-ups were the order of the day.

I set off with the idea of producing some images redolent of Autumn. This image was a happy coincidence. I just happened to see this leaf on a bench and thought I'd try a low view of the scene chosing a depth of field that put the background grass out of focus.

I'm quite pleased with the result. Hope you enjoy it too.

If done right a simple leaf is sometimes as effective as a whole mass of autumn colour - as demonstrated here.
