Day 230—Sunset Leaf

The sun was setting and I hadn’t taken my photo yet today so I walked down to the mailbox with my camera in tow (50mm lens attached) hoping to capture my neighbor’s morning glory (even though it was not morning any longer) but as I walked by, I realized that the flowers were all fading either from the unrelenting heat we’ve had here or just because. So, I walked around the corner to the landscaped easement behind my house. As I looked at the pin oak toward the setting sun, I liked the look of the leaves with what little light remained. I had to enhance the photo a bit with adjustments to blacks and whites and clarity and vibrance but I like the end result and of course the bokeh.
