Bold Yet Fragile

Remember, a camera in the bag means the photo’s not grabbed. By walking with it in my hand, I’m at the ready and more likely to stop for a potential picture. 
This gentle stream is tucked into a small wooded area between two parking lots. I explored it from all angles and marveled at the beauty of the foliage. The pictures were just so-so until I found this lone leaf. Bold in color yet fragile in nature. I used a circular polarizing filter to enhance its vibrant tones. With my 20mm lens set to a wide aperture of f1.7 the background melted into a wash of greens and blues.
