Number four in the hit parade as determined by the panel of judges (aka me) was this autumnal image. I knew I had the sunrise flare, but I wanted a singular falling leaf in the image as well. I waited patiently for one leaf (not more) to be in the frame and in relative focus. I’m not an Ansel Adams, who would often wait for hours for just the right light, but I did wait for minutes (about the limit of my patience!).My patience was rewarded with this shot.
