Phoneography and Non-SLR Digital Devices Photo Challenge #5

This is the only plant that didn’t loose any leaves, even when wind force Bft 8 was blowing away a chair and the remaining leaves of other plants in my terrace.

I used an iPhone 5s and the app Camera+ macro to capture the dried leaves of a Copper Beech tree (scientific name: ‘Fagus Sylvatica – Atropunicea’).

As the sun set yesterday, its lights created a beautiful contrast of colors on those dried leaves of the Copper Beech tree. Copper beeches first appeared as mutants independently in different parts of Europe and were already known in Germany before 1488. Today this tree is planted extensively in parks and gardens, adding dark purple leaves to the landscape.

Here are the photos:

I am joining Lens and Pens by Sally, who hosts each Monday the Phoneography and Non-SLR Digital Devices Photo Challenge. Following the link you will learn how to join in. I invite you to check her blog as well. Besides stunning photos, Sally shares insightful reflections, which are worth reading.

  1. Leaves are such intriguing parts of nature. Their metamorphosis does entertain and bring awe. I enjoyed the second image for its patterns and tones, color contrasts and composition. Happy Photo Challenge.

    • Indeed, Sally. Nature doesn’t stop surprising and entertaining us.
      I am glad you liked the 2nd image. It is the one which came out better. Thanks much for letting me know your opinion.
