Week 28, Day 200, November 9, 2009, Oak Leaves





When my children where younger, I used to pick up oak leaves and put them on my nose, and tell the kids that I had oak leaf (Oakley) glasses.  They would roll their eyes, and I would explain that as a father I had to embarrass them.

The Oak leaves are one of the last leafs to fall off the tree at the end of the season.  As a matter of fact some of them stay on the tree until the spring when the new leaves bud.

With gray skies, I thought these leaves made interesting patterns.

Lesson Learned:
  • Nothing new to report today.  It was a rough day.
Photo details: Exposure time 1/800, Aperture f/1.8, ISO 100, Focal Length 50 mm, 35 mm equivalent focal length 211mm, Lens Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II, hand held.

Ooh I like the abstract feel of this. Nice work!

Oak trees are great especially really big old ones. This picture is really neat I like the shapes of the leaves and the color of the background.

Great job on the shot, Steve. I really had to focus - didn't have my glasses on yet - to see the leaves as the abstractness (is that a word?) caught my attention.

ooo I really like this one! The contrast between the leaves and dark sky is very cool. Nice use of creativity!

Hope today is better for you!

I think you "reported" those leaves very well.

Nice patterns. The silhouette works well.
