Oh, it’s so nice to finally get back to shooting in my yard now that spring has truly sprung here in Massachusetts. I took this shot a bit over a week ago and the leaves are much bigger now and the flower buds are emerging. But there’s something so special about the baby leaves – their yellow-green color and the way they catch the late afternoon light that just says spring to me.
Nikon D700 and Nikon 105mm f/2.8 micro lens.
I did a few basic adjustments and finished with Grotto and Madeleine from Leslie Nicole’s French Kiss Textures.
