Art by Nature No. 1

Art by Nature I

A lemon leaf, captured with my 100 mm F/2.8 macro lens. In the making of this picture I have used HDR to enhance the details of the leaf.

All the white spots on the leaf are vesicles which contain the essential oil that gives lemon leafs their characteristic smell.

  1. Wow, this is so cool! So neat to see the actual vesicles, I can almost smell the lemon oil.

    I have long been fascinated with the beauty of art in nature, now I just need to figure out how to use my digital camera so I can take such incredible photography. Thank you for sharing 🙂

    • Thanks! Well, you know the fun part is to figure out how to do it, once you know that the only thing left is to do it 😀 I’m still learning.
