Nikon D 5000 75 to 300 mm
ISO 200 75 mm F6 1-1000 second

This image was made on one of the first mornings that we had frost last fall. I had the opportunity to move around to get backlighting behind the leaf to emphasize the Frost. I changed the height of the camera to get the dark tree line behind the leaf to enhance the frost. Then I used a very shallow depth of field to throw the background out of focus.

    Beautiful, love the way the light highlights the “hairs” on the branch and leaf!
