Some studies of leaves
Here are some pictures focusing on leaves and their beautiful shapes and colors.
Each plant is unique and each change of season brings a change in the appearance of their leaves. This set of images is a mix of "straight from the camera" and some that are "enhanced". Look at the difference in shapes; check out the gorgeous colors. Leaves are AWESOME!
I love them, and I have a few to show you. There will be another posting of leaves later on in the year. These are strictly for viewing enjoyment - I'll stick a name on them, and a couple will be pretty general regarding the identification.
|These were tone-mapped. Perhaps birch???|
|Dogwood Autumn Leaves - Tone-Mapped|
|Butterfly bush in January Ice|
|Maybe a Beech Tree.|
|Oak Tree in Autumn|
|Perhaps Beech as these trees hold on to their leaves all winter.|

|Lilypads in Autumn|
|Bull Briar (Cat Briar) in Summer Rain|
|Late Summer Pine Tree - Yes, Pine needles are leaves|
