I just thought I’d have a go at photographing the veins on a leaf. It was such a wonderfully sunny day and the sky, being so blue, made a nice backdrop. The light from behind has really highlighted the veins on the leaf. Technically it is really not much to look at and, because I was holding the camera rather than using a tripod and it was such a windy day, it shows a little blur.

I’m sure I could have got the same result from a cabbage leaf with less fuss but I don’t have a cabbage around the house. I was using a macro lens so the scale is not really apparent but this is really only a few millimetres of the leaf.
