Japanese Maple Tree
Maple Tree Leaves
The tree’s delicate leaves start out green and then turn into most incredible shades of purple-red; the transformation is a joy to admire and, of course, to photograph.
I’m currently trying to conquer my new Canon 70-200 mm F/2.8 lens and, for the first time, I feel the equipment fighting back which took me completely by surprise. After waiting for over a year to get this monster, I got completely intimidated the very first time I picked it up. It is HEAVY! 3.28 pound in weight seemed like a bit much for me at first but, after seriously considering returning it, I decided to suck it up, toughen up and find a way to make it work.
This maple tree image is the product of my efforts and I have a feeling that it’s just the beginning of a very special relationship.
