Stoned Leaves


I made my annual pilgrimage to Westonbirt Arboretum last Friday and brought home a few leaves to try out an idea that I had a while ago. They kept ok in my camera bag for about 24 hours, but I took them out and in a couple of hours they'd totally crisped up.

This is a technique that Alistair has mastered to perfection and as yet, I am only a struggling novice!

Oh, and by the way, this wasn't the idea that prompted me to bring home the leaves.

Nice.
Occasionally, I bring home fallen leaves, or flowers, and give them a bit of time on the flat-bed scanner which can work nicely as a hi-res camera.
Steve: Thanks Ray, there's a chapter in one of my photo art books on using flatbed scanners, but it's not something I've tried much.
I really like this shot. The background is a perfect foil for these vibrant colours. (:o)
