In The Wake Of Adversity by alexandre-deschaumes In The Wake Of Adversity by alexandre-deschaumes
Not a lot of people enjoy the coming of the fall .. I DO .


**

During my last hike in the french alps I found this carpet of frozen leaves.

I really like to focus on the hidden treasure into the forest ..

there is beauty everywhere .. shapes, textures, forms, abstract , ..
I can spend hours seeking for a composition.I love it.

It is difficult to tell how much this piece has been edited. In ultimatum it doesn't seem like that much has been done to it; but it definitely has an other-wordly beauty that beckons the viewer to stare at it for a long time in order to soak in all the fine, delicate details, which have been finely and perfectly refined. The ice clinging to these leaves has a very alien quality, beautiful and majestic. The colors, though of dying, fallen leaves, carry a warmth against the cold. This contrast of temperature works nicely. The framing of the main leaf, too, is perfect.

This beautiful photograph of a well-recognized object edges on the abstract and hearkens back to the harsh, wild places of the world that attract so many men who've forgotten their true origins.

This is art.

This photo is great.The leaf stands alone and perfect among the leaves.All have different colors and a similar shade.
It looks like the leaf has been changed and its color enhanced with the help of a program in order to make it better.
Fallen leaves really represent fall in our minds;the rest of earth and the silence waiting for spring to come.All the browns are a feature of fall and take us back to rest.Fall is the season of november and itis also the time to think back about life and the past things.fall is a way to revive ourselves

This is incredible. I love shots with leaves, And tend to find myself constantly find myself trying to take them. This is the first time I think I've seen a frozen one. And it is just incredible.
