As leaves in all their autumnal colours and hues are plentiful at present, your challenge is to find the most interesting leaf you can and concentrate on its details - back-lit veins, for example, or a ragged edge that looks as if someone or something has had a good chew of it.

The Rules

1.The challenge is just for fun.
2. YOUR IMAGE MUST BE TAKEN AFTER THE THEME IS ANNOUNCED.
3. The image must be uploaded in a comment in this thread by 8pm (UK time) on the following Sunday.
4. Only one upload per member.
5. The person who hosts is the judge for that week's challenge and the judge’s decision is final.
6. The winner gets to create, run and judge the challenge for the following week.
7. Photos in the thread, no links.
8. For new participants - if you win, you will have to set and judge the next week's challenge.
9. Get leafing through your garden or local park...

Just to get the ball rolling - I decided to take advantage of the drizzly weather. Smile

Drizzly weather? It's been lovely down here in Devon, apart from when I've been asleep. A backlit one from me this week.

Autumn Leaf

After having a look for leaves on my way to and back from the local store I found several leaves that had Yellows, Greens and browns in but I also found some with a red stem.

This was backlit with my flashgun which was situated to the right of subject.

OK then, let's see...only three entries this week - I honestly thought there were more leaves lying around than that...oh well...

At least none of you were tempted to get all close up and friendly with a Nissan Leaf.Wink

Of the three entries, I am particularly taken by the range of colours exhibited in the entry submitted by the member named Andrew, so I, saltireblue, as returning officer for this challenge, do hereby name Andrew as the winner of the golden whatsit this week. Thanks go to the other competitors for their worthy efforts. No recounts will be considered.
