Flame Spike

2 months 3 days ago #696905 by stevendillonphoto
Flame Spike is from my Naturally Abstract collection and was composed at the Aiken County Historical Museum in Aiken, SC.  Some of you may remember my Impaled piece.  Well, this is an example of the leaf tip that the berries fall on.  And, yes, you have to be careful around them - they are like needles.  This is at nearly 3X magnification,  To amplify the brightness of the subject (and bring out the glowing feel), I used an angle that looked into an area of the background that was in heavy shadow.
