In an effort to get a sharp image of the veins of colorful aspens leaves, I collected a dozen or so leaves in Rock Creek Canyon. I wanted a fall color palette that showed the intricate leaf veins with their fall pigments. (As the cold temperatures of autumn approach, green chlorophyll production slows, and the more stable yellow and orange carotenoid pigments present in the leaves show through. Aspens also produce darker anthocyanin pigments during bright fall days and cool nights that remain above freezing.) To bring out this leaf color and venation, I placed the leaves on a light table and used my sharpest macro lens.

This image is probably most pleasing as a metal print.

About the Fine Art Photos

Premium fine art canvas wraps are printed directly onto museum-quality canvas using high-quality archival inks. The canvas used is specially coated, ph neutral and archival, and comes in surfaces that are glossy, lustre (near-matte surface), or metallic for a radiant glow.

Metal prints are made by infusing dyes directly onto specially coated, .045 aluminum sheets that are durable, scratch resistant, and easy to clean. They are waterproof and weatherproof, but should not be displayed in direct sunlight. They come with 1/8″ rounded corners and are ready to hang.

Prints take 15-20 days to process, then will be shipped.
