Leaf & Rock

Canon 40D 100 macro - 8 seconds @ F20 ISO 100

The blue comes from accidentally forgetting to switch the white balance from last night's tungsten run combined with a Singh-Ray LB Warming polarizer. The long exposure blurred the remaining reflections.

Last Leaf of Summer

Rusty red in the fast fading light

Comes to rest against

The Blue.

Last Leaf of Summer

So tired

Unaware this rest is not a rest

It is the end of the journey.
