About This Botanical / Nature Photo:
Bleak Winter is a high key nature photograph of a single dried leaf resting on a thick blanket of snow during a snow storm that created a white out. When I saw the stray leaf in the snow of the empty hiking trail I was reminded of the first verse of “In The Bleak Midwinter” poem by Christina Rossetti. A glass plate aging effect was added to this photograph to enhance the mood of the scene.
