While I was out walking Floyd today, I spotted the Japanese Maple on the greenway. I tried a few different angles and ended up laying on my back under the tree. Keep in mind this is right next to the greenway. I always walk my dog there, so do many other people. What do dogs do around trees? I tried not to think about that as I lay there. I had to be patient too because it was pretty windy and the leaves were blowing around. I'm fairly certain I had some strange looks from passersby but I think it was worth it. I cropped and adjusted the colors slightly but nothing too radical.
Here is another look at it. In this one, I lowered the saturation a bit and cropped it some. While I liked it, I preferred the color and shadow of the first one.
I'm a mother of 2 girls living in NC. I've dabbled in photography on and off but really this is just for fun
