Expose

As the fall was coming to an end, I decided to go for a sunrise walk in a local park, to take in the scenery. Being November, it was about 41 degrees outside, and much of the ground was covered in frost. I had watched the sunrise and took in the landscape of fallen leaves.

This photo was actually somewhat challenging to take. First, I had to lie on the cold (and wet) leaves. Secondly, there was a bit of a cold breeze that morning, so I had to wait until the leaves were still to take the shot. To help, I actually had a small 2 inch tripod that I used to steady the camera. I used a wide aperture of f3.2 to allow a fast shutter speed and a brokeh effect with the background to keep the focus on the leaf.

I really enjoy this photo because of the way the sunlight exposes the circulatory system of the leaf, and the fractal pattern it makes. Light can sometimes open up a whole new world...
