Natural landscapes: in the colourful shade


Following the paths in this urban park guided me to a surprise wetland. This was one of the pictures I made there; I like how the background is brighter than the leaves, but the leaves retain detail and colour. The shallow depth of field was vital here, to make the background a gentle wash of colour that helps the leaves stand out.
