Ice bulb

Went for a walk at Heart Creek and found this leaf with a bit of ice around the edge stem just sitting near the edge of the creek. This was my favorite picture from our walk.

I positioned the leaf on various rocks and tried shooting from a few different angles - trying to find something that looked good. After taking several photos I thought the images I was getting were rather flat so I brought out my flash and tried to add some texture by creating some shadows and highlights. I held the flash on the side at a low angle, shooting down into the ice to create the image that you see here. In post processing I spent about fifteen minutes cloning out bits of dirt and sand in the surrounding ice. Overall, I`m pleased with how it turned out.

As I post more pic`s from the walk, you`ll be able to find them here.

Thanks for reading,
