Leaf Close Up

Fall is finally here with the hopes of bright leaf color. I like to pick up leaves in my yard that have interesting patterns and take them inside to scan on my flatbed scanner. I usually get strange looks from my neighbors as I collect these beautiful leaves. When I picked this one off the ground I was amazed to find a leaf in several stages of color change. I have a scanner with dual lights for scanning film. Thus , I scanned the leave as if it were film. The light shining through the leaf helped to reveal the complex structure of the tiny veins.
