Greenleaf Manzanita















Click on photo to enlarge

I've taken pictures similar to this before, and probably even posted one, but I just love the patterns in the leaves of Greenleaf Manzanita (Arctostaphylos patula), and the way the light penetrates them.

The photo was taken today at 3:52 P.M. with my Canon Powershot S2 IS in the M (manual) and Super Macro modes, with the aperature at f /3.5 and a shutter speed of 1/320th of a second. No attachments were used. The picture is not cropped and I shot it close-in to emphasize the intricate design.

post script-

I posted the camera settings for Norene who recently purchased the same camera.

what a lovely vibrant green! I've read good things about that model and it looks like it's in good hands :)

Ah! Another S2 IS user. I just bought one a couple weeks ago, still puzzling over what many of the buttons are for. Nice stuff here! I've bookmarked it.
