2020—Cooler Days

The weather has warmed suddenly. It was quite chilly when we were first sequestered in mid March. But now, with spring in full bloom, the trees are completely leafed out. Spring blossoms are already beginning to fade and we’re heading too quickly to the searing days of summer. The past few days the weather has been unseasonably warm, passing the 90 degree mark for three days straight, about 15 degrees above normal for this time of year. There are some remnants of winter left, though. This dried oak leaf and empty acorn cap reminded me of cooler days just past. This is another focus shift image. It took a couple of tries before I got a stacked image that I liked. I had to be careful where I placed the starting focal point to make sure all parts of the leaf were in focus.
