Very nice, pvdb! This is a splendid example of “marcescent" leaves . . . leaves that do not fall off in winter time. Can you identify the tree? Beech perhaps?
Once again, well done!

That is one heck of an incredibly beautiful background!
I love the cool colors and the hints of distant tree trunks as they fade into the distant sky.
Very nice use of cool colors.

Oh yeah - the leaves are really nice, too!

"Your" and "you're" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"They're", "their", and "there" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "peace of mind", NOT "piece of mind".

Good word Barry. Around here the beech leaves look just like that.
The latin root marcere, to wither, is one I can't think of as being used in any other word.

It's been such a warm winter that my cottonwood thought January was spring, and time to put out some leaves. It did get cold, though, and they fell off.

This was taken through my front window with a Nikon D5200 and a Samyang 500mm, F:6.3 (Fixed aperture) lens. The lens isn't listed, so I had to claim it was the only lens listed for Samyang in order to get it on my gallery.

This is from about 1965, so there is no EXIF information to load onto the forum. I used a Nikon FTN 35mm camera with a 50mm, F:1.4 lens, shooting with Kodachrome film. To digitize it, I scanned it into my computer. Another photo that won't load onto my gallery, because it's wasn't a listed digital camera.

Actually, I was shooting through my front window, testing a new lens - a 500mm mirror Samyang. I don't like it much. It's light-weight but isn't really very sharp, and is hard to focus. It's totally manual and has a fixed aperture. It focuses from less than 6 feet to well past infinity in just a 90 degree turn of the focus ring. The tiniest bit of rotation can take it past focus, and correcting takes it past focus in the other direction. And now, I've pretty much replaced it anyway, with the Tamron 150-600 lens - which weighs about 4 or 5 five times as much... :(
