Leaf Photography Artwork

In the past decade I considered the peaking fall foliage in October pretty much the end of my yearly photography efforts. Usually I used November and December to catch up on my digital photography files until the first snow arrived. This year was different and in early November I discovered tree leaf photography for myself. It all started on my front porch when I was pleasantly surprised to find a decaying gray leaf on a pile of brown leaves. It made a fantastic post autumn foliage photograph and inspired me to head out into the field looking for more. I figured the Boston Arnold Arboretum would suit my nature photography quest well. Once again the arboretum did not let me down! I found beautiful colored leaves at the edge of the ponds and in the carpeted wooden areas. Leaves in all colors and forms made this photographic discovery truly exhilarating. Best of all, it extended my nature photography journey further into the year making the cold weather more bearable.
