Day 300

ISO 100, 100mm macro, f/4.0, 1/50 sec.

Day 300 - The Lone Red

When I moved to the Pacific Northwest I quickly became enamoured of the Japanese maple trees that were everywhere. Seven years ago we planted a pair of them side-by-side, one is red and the other is green.

While I was working this afternoon I was obviously worried more about my photo of the day than the work at hand. The only thing I could think about was trying to isolate one red leaf against the golden orange background of the second tree.

Oh how I adore that 100mm lens. We are one.

  3. I love it. I also can't believe you are at day 300. My internet was down last night, so I didn't think I'd make it past Day 17.
