Essence Revealing Itself

    "The hidden secret of fall: the leaves don’t actually “turn” colors. With the winter season coming, and the process of photosynthesis being without the key ingredients of warmth and sunshine, trees begin to break down chlorophyll. With the “green” gone, the other colors that have been there all along — the magical reds, golds, and oranges — begin to express themselves." via On Being - www.onbeing.org/blog/the-autumn-of-our-own-existence/6967

      Wonders of nature. The leaf seems to be floating. Great capture.

      And I like how the bokeh highlights the essence of the leaf.

      And this leaf appears to be offering itself to the viewer...."look and really see me - you are one with me and all those in the background and all others unseen!"

      Gorgeous! It looks as if it was glued on top of the photo. I love how it really stands out as something very special
