The River

Most shots of this style have the floating leaf or feather or whatever in focus with the background in a blur, usually from a lower vantage point, looking almost level with the water. I decided to switch that up, use the eye's expectation of that to make it go directly to the bright leaf with the dark background then be brought up to the detail on the trees and back and forth. Oh yeah, and walking in the river up to my knees in mid-October, a bit chilly. I don't plan on doing a shot like this again anytime soon. Thanks to Frank, owner of the property bordering the water, that chatted about his own photography and let me go out and get this shot.

Taken just upriver from the green bridge in Morrisonville, NY on the Saranac.
