Who says you can’t manipulate nature a bit to get an interesting shot? This beautiful leaf was on the ground right next to the tree from whence it fell. And as the tree had this interesting bark I just put the two of them together. Took a bit of luck and effort as there was a nice breeze going on at the time. I love the colors maple leaves turn in autumn.
