Still Hanging On.....

Yesterday, the sun came out for a bit, and I decided to haul out my old 6 MP KM7D camera to see if it was still working or not. After putting on my 50mm macro lens, I went outside on the deck where there were some dried out old dead leaves still clinging to the rose bushes there. For some reason, old, withered and dead plants and leaves are fascinating to me, and so I started to shoot a few of them that were tenacious enough to still be hanging on after the blasts of Winter, and early Spring. Nothing too fancy here, just an image of one of them. Hope you enjoy it also....and fresh blossoms will be coming soon.

Great shop, nice vignetting. I always enjoy photographing plants and leaves in the fall just before snowfall. You get nice textures from the decaying plants. Combined with nice post sunrise or pre-sunset lighting
you can get nice photos to work on. You can produce very sharp colourful prints or great abstracts.

Thanks for your comment John. I used the macro lens wide open, and just focused on the jagged edge closest to the lens. The darkened corners are natural and were not taken down in post processing. I just like the warm rich colours. Dave
