Maple in detail

Some of the most amazingly beautiful things in the world are the things we don’t notice because they’re tiny.  Above is the stem of a maple leaf.  Specifically the stem of a Bigleaf Maple, the Acer Macrophyllum.   They grow all over the place up here and when Fall rolls around they start dropping gigantic leaves.  They cover the park across the street with a decaying, red and yellow crunchy blanket.

    • Thanks. All it took was extension tubes and a zoom lens. And a tripod. And a towel. And a table. I think that’s it.
