Green Leaves

Just leafing through some old photos (couldn’t resist that!) I came across these two photos of green leaves, taken at different times and places.

The top one was a hand held macro (Canon EOS 450D, 100mm macro, 1/200s f/4.5) taken on a spring day. I liked the way the bud is unfurling in front of the single leaf.

The one below is one of my favourites. Also from the 450D, but using a “nifty fifty” 50 mm lens. The shape of the leaf, in a background of soft green light caught my eye. The water drop was just a bonus! It’s been re-edited here, but I have used it before in a “Green Things” post.

One thought – you don’t need a state of the art camera to take reasonable photos!

This post is one for Bren Ryan’s “Photo for the Week – 19 – Leaves” challenge.
