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.
Lovely colours, great detail
Great close up abstract. Nice one.
Well seen, it looks almost like snakeskin.
Instantly recognisable as a BrianM, such a great eye for seeing patterns and shapes. This one certainly has oomph, I like it.
very nice, looks like running lava
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 excellent colour - a pure abstract.
Thanks for viewing and kind comment, Jim, appeciated.
What wonderful colours Brian, I think the brown bits add a bit of nice texture, well observed as always.
Thanks for taking a look Mary and for the kind comment, appreciated.
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.
Thanks for viewing Anne, and for your comments, appreciated. These leaves certainly go out with a blaze of glory.
Lovely colours Brian, makes a super abstract.
Thanks for viewing and comment, Richard, appreciated.
