Stay-at-Home Backyard Photography: 6: "Maple Tree 'Helicopters'"

August 09, 2020  •  Leave a Comment

Photographed in May, my notes tell me that this set of helicopters was lying on our driveway after a windy night, with the stem and branch attached.  I held it up with my left hand so it was backlit and positioned against a forest background.  And I took the photo with the camera held in my right hand.

I especially like the color combination of the pink/red/orange winged seeds against the blurred green of the forest in the background.
