POTD: Aspen Leaves in a Snow Drop

Tiny aspen leaves in a snow drop.

Snow was melting on aspen leaves, creating “snow drops”. The clouds were beginning to part and sunlight was shining on the leaves. I was looking for another great leaf at the same location as the prior post.

Any time you have water droplets you have the possibility of a tiny image reflected in a water droplet. As I wandered around I finally found this leaf. The thing that really made the photo for me was the tiny aspen leaves in the most prominent snow drop.

Photo data: Canon 5D Mark III. Canon EF 24-105mm lens at 105mm. f/14, 1/125 sec, ISO 200.
