A beautiful but final autumn flourish?

It has been a wonderfully lengthy autumn in Tokyo, but this could well be a final flourish before it gets considerably colder and brown becomes the all-encompassing colour.

    Beautiful shot Lee. I love the pastel colours and crisp outline of that single maple leaf. This could easily be used for some sort of product advertisement or background for something :).

      Thanks a lot Michael. Flowers and leaves aren’t really my thing, but I was really pleased the way this one came out. The light and colors were beautiful, so it was nice to be able to capture at least some of it.

      Oh, that’s interesting. Not something I’d even considered to be honest. There again, that’s exactly why I love the notion of wabi-sabi. So personal, and utterly impossible to pinpoint.

    Autumn??笑 It’s Dec. 21st here and although a strange 10 degrees Celsius here in Canada, the leaves are a distant memory

      I guess it’s officially winter, but there are still quite a few autumn colours to be seen. Still pretty mild too. Although it probably won’t be for long.

    It’s a lovely picture!!!!

    May I ask you the permission to use it as a reference photo for a watercolr? it will suit perfectly for the scope!

    Of course I will give your credentials if I will put the watercolour on the net!

    If you agree could you please advice me by email (if I am asking too much, please forgive me) and Merry Xmas!
