This shot of low-growing foliage was taken during a day hike through Kluane National Park in the Yukon, Canada, in late 2008.
The early autumn colours around the hills were just starting to appear, and the higher we climbed, the more pronounced were the contrasts. There are at least two types of green leaves in this frame, as well as dark bark on the right and lighter bark on the left – perfect for the overall image I sought to portray.
I do not crop, enhance or post-edit my images in any way. Shot with a Pentax K100D, using a Sigma 18-125mm lens. F8, 1/900 sec, ISO 400, focal length 98mm.
