At Rest

Autumn is certainly a time of change, but it is also a time of rest. These leaves which burst forth with the first warm rays of the sun in spring, rapidly grew from tiny buds into amazing different shapes. Then they waved like mad when the big thunderstorms of summer blew through. Almost never have they sat perfectly still as the air almost always has had some small breeze creating a current. Now, however things have changed. The leaves make one last trip as they flutter to the ground and come to rest silently, gathering frost with a whole community of others. I have added below a crop from this image showing off the amazing capabilities of this little camera. The crop is a detail of a print that is 50″ across!!

  3. Very nice photo Colin. The detail and textures are great. Coincidentally I’ve been researching the DP2 as its a pretty interesting camera. Its images have amazing resolution.
