Leaf Abstract

By vickyf
A fantastic day at Kew yesterday courtesy of epz with fellow epz members, crookymonsta, marktc, mikesmith and susanbarton, overseen by world renowned garden photographer, Clive Nichols. This is an abstract effort from the waterlily house of a tropical leaf. I had a macro lens with me, so any capture of water lilies was out of the question (probably just as well, as I've seen stunning uploads from Mike and Susan already on that subject!), so I had to think outside the box.

Many thanks to Clive for his expert advice and great attitude, Pete, Josh and the epz team + Natasha and Samsung for this wonderful opportunity (and the memory card). Also thanks to my husband, rogerfry, for lending me his Canon 60D.

Great abstract you have produced here, certainly close up and personal! It was so good to meet up with you and the others yesterday, it certainly was a fantastic opportunity and an experience I shall treasure. I do hope we will be able to keep in touch and even meet up sometime, Kew on a dry and still day would be a bonus!
