Photo of the day: Suspended in time

Relaxing at Drift Creek Camp, in the coastal mountains east of Lincoln City, Oregon, I went for a walk in the gray morning light of a late October day. I took a lot of pictures of mushrooms, but this image of a leaf, slowly decaying on the end of its branch, was my favorite of the set. I love the subtle colors of the leaf, the narrow depth of field, with scenery blurred both in front of the leaf and behind it, and the way the light refracts around the twig itself, leaving the leaf suspended both literally and figuratively in time.

Here's another one from the same set that I like, too.

  1. I love leaves too. I think I prefer the second of these.
