I was out walking towards dusk with my camera and I came across some amazing fall colors in a small oak sapling growing by the side of the dirt road. As I lined up the shot, my flash fired due to the waning light conditions.
I kept photographing the leaves, and I was amazed at the stark visual effects of flash photography for leaves. It is a situation that never occurred to me before and some of the photos are stunning with the black contrast in the background.
