Red leaf

The one red leaf, the last of its clan,
That dances as often as dance it can,
Hanging so light, and hanging so high,
On the topmost twig that looks up at the sky.
~Samuel Taylor Coleridge

  1. This is a great shot! Such vibrant color and great background blur! And the poetry is perfectly fitting! Great post!

    Was that leaf actually once green????? Stunning.

    It’s a remarkable photo. The blue background is perfect for this red little leaf. This reminds me of O’Henry’s short story The Last Leaf.

    I saw that you can read it online.
    By the way I reviewed Mrs Palfrey 🙂

    Absolutely stunning Carole. This is a perfect example of simplicity in photography and balance in composition! I’m teaching my kids about this now and would love to use it as an example for them with your permission!
