Hamamelis LeafThe obvious, and yet amazing, thing to say about autumn leaves is that they are all different. Every single one. These hamamelis mollis leaves caught my attention last night.
We live in a commercialised world that tells us that perfection is beauty. But just take the time to look at nature, and you’ll see, in perceived imperfection, amazing beauty. What a lesson!

Alphabet Photography Project: X is for Xanthophyll

Xanthophyll in MarigoldsXanthophylls are a family of natural yellow substances found in nature. The yellow colouring in various types of tagetes (marigold) is a spectacular example. Many leaves contain xanthophyll, which shows up in the autumn, when the amount of chlorophyll present decreases, so that its green colour no longer predominates.
