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:
