Grape Leaf

Our grapevine is out of control. In a few days time with the help of some heavy rains it has grown and reached well beyond its usual borders.

I took advantage of my perspective as I was sitting at my dining table, getting some work done. Though a windy day, this leaf was pretty still, clinging to my window, beautifully backlit by the daylight. I grabbed my camera and took a bunch of shots with my macro lens, wanting to get as much of the detailed pattern in the veining as possible.

Still wanting to add to the image, I brought it into photo shop to add a texture layer, partly for mood and partly to mask my dirty windows!
