Leaves Aflame

I was looking back in some old files and found this image from a walk along Buffalo Bayou in Houston made just after I bought the Canon 10D at least five years ago. These are the leaves of the tropicana canna plant with the sun behind them. Looks like a leaping fire. Somehow it reminds me of a Georgia O'Keefe painting. Wonder how it would look printed large on one of the wonderful new papers.

Billie -- Your earlier photographs inspired me to start using the camera along our local stream. I tried some backlit leaves -- only to discover that I had not reinstalled my memory card. Ah, well. None of them were as gorgrous as the shot you posted today.

That is beautiful Billie! I would love it printed really large, it would light up a wall.

I've been considering having some pics printed very large but I have no idea how or where. I see some google time in my future.

That's an incredible shot. Don't shoot me for the suggestion, but I can't get out of my mind what this image would look like if printed on cloth.

It is picture perfect, and I would love a tablecloth of it. Thank you.

You're right, very Georgia O'Keefe. I love how you find such beautiful details.

Now, Billie. You know how it would look....stupendous! This is one of the more fascinating photos you have posted. Loving it!

Steve, don't worry. Many's the time I've forgotten a memory card of a fresh battery. S*%t happens as some say. You can also do things like save the small jpg for the net but not the larger on for a print.........yes, I did. I'll need to work up the image again but I'm going to make a print.
