Spotted this leaf that had fallen from an evergreen shrub (sorry I don't know it's name) and was attracted by the bright colours.

Instantly recognisable as a BrianM, such a great eye for seeing patterns and shapes. This one certainly has oomph, I like it. Smile

Thanks all for taking a look and for the kind comments, appreciated.

Lydia - perhaps it would have had a bit more oomph had I "removed" the two patches of brown which now I've looked at it again seem to detract from the other bright colours : on the plus side it is as found apart from minor tidying up.

What wonderful colours Brian, I think the brown bits add a bit of nice texture, well observed as always.

Works well as a brightly coloured abstract. I wouldn't have thought of putting a leaf on a scanner, but I guess it makes close-ups of flat subjects a bit easier. (I would guess that this could be a mahonia leaf, but can't be sure without seeing the whole thing.) Click.

Thanks for taking a look, John, and for the comments, appreciated.

No further on with identification apart from to say it isn't a mahonia, the plant is tall (6ft after 7 years) throwing out a bunch of stems each covered with 11 spikey leaves (similar to holly) plus two at the very base of the stem where it joins the the main stem. I should know, we planted it!

Over the years I've scanned a number of images the most successful here being Braeburn Apple . One of the first and the most successful was Patterns in Nature , please feel free to take a look sometime.

Lovely Brian, wouldn't have guessed it was a leaf at first ...the splash of red in the top corner just makes it.

Yes, I'm well, thanks and will be back before too long although with other things happening photography has taken a bit of a seat at the moment.

Sorry to hear about your problems, hope all is well now. I did notice you were missing (before I went missing) and was concerned that something may have been wrong.
