HORSE CHESTNUT BUD AGAINST STORMY SKY
Vibrant, fresh green leaves emerge from the sticky bud on a deciduous horse chestnut (aesculus hippocastanum) or conker tree branch against a stormy spring sky. The induced flash macro increased the contrast with the sky and enhanced the colours and detail of the vital emerging new leaf growth and brown sticky bud. Shot taken in a garden on the North Devon & Cornwall border, SW England, UK.
