Winter Leaf

OK, there’s not really much you can say about leaves, and this one isn’t any different to a million others. A lonely leaf, singular, and unique clings to a rosebush throughout the harsh winter.

Never really had much to do with the Macro disciplines, but have managed to acquire myself a set of extentino tubes which arrived this morning. Had a little play indoors, but was surprised to note that even items that don’t look dusty are actually covered. Will post some of them, once I’ve sorted them out. and cleaned them up.. Later today, I found this little fella, and now appreciate just how hard this is. The DOF is so shallow I may have to invest in a tin of bug killer spray, to make sure they don’t run away. Hopefully, you’ll be able to see an improvement as I post more of these. Also need to figure out a way of attaching the flash to the end of the lens as f2.8 must equate to a Depth of field less than 1mm Need to try more of these.
