Maple Decay

Maple Decay

 

While exploring the banks of the Ammonoosuc River below Mount Washington in the White Mountains of New Hampshire, I noticed a bunch of fallen leaves in a small pool of water. Upon closer inspection I was delighted to find a single maple leaf that had fallen from the canopy above mixed in with the oily decay of organic matter. As i moved around the pool of water, the oily sheen began to pick up and reflect the blue sky above. The color contrast was too wonderful to pass up. I used my Nikon 70-200mm with a 1.4 tele-convertor to frame the leaf. I choose a daylight balance to retail the cool blue reflection and used LIVE VIEW for critical focusing to make sure the entire image was sharp from edge to edge.
