Red, White and Green

Those are, of course, the colours of the Welsh flag[1], but that’s not what I was thinking off when I saw this little group of leaves yesterday. My thoughts, such as they are, were more along the lines of “ooo!! pretty”, and led me to get in nice and close with the 24-105mm lens at its maximum length on the Canon 5D MkII. I had the aperture not far off its maximum at f/4.5, allowing the camera to set the exposure to 1/160 sec and a lovely low-noise ISO 100 setting.

Post-processing was limited to cropping it to a square, which seemed to work better, and a quick tweak of the Clarity and Vibrance sliders in Lightroom. I like this one a lot, and it’s another candidate for a large print job.
