Leafcolors 3: Withdrawing oak leafcolors

Photo & Video Sharing by SmugMug

In this detailed view of an autumnal oak leaf, I like the many different tones of brown and the contrasty yellow and greenish leaf veins in the center. The leaf seems to die and dry from the edge and only in the center a small shape remains alive. A thin green line separates the yellowish core from the withered edge. I guess that the leaf has been infected with a fungus and what you can observe is another example of autumnal decaying, as in the last leafcolor example. As all the images shown in the leafcolor gallery, it is not a photograph, but a scan of a fallen leaf.
