Leaf in Snow

A single faded and almost transparent leaf is highlighted against the intense blue of newly fallen crystalline snow.

The essence of wabi sabi, it forms a simple, stark and delicate composition on a bitterly cold morning.

Really lovely. Makes me want to write a story/poem about leaves and snow and magical walks to witness them...

Cast-off leaves on snow allow us to appreciate their beauty all the more.

I love the way you managed to capture the individual crystals of snow, the veins in the leaf, and how those both convey the utter stillness, silence and bone-freezing cold of a winter morning.
