Xanthic Venation


Venation is defined as the pattern of veins in the blade of a leaf. This photograph is my first attemt to capture one of the natures most beautifully and variably designed subject Leaves.

No one knows whose life they touch or who they will embrace,
Just by actions that they do or being face to face.
But your life will be noticed as the brightly colored trees,
As either brilliant beauty or a pile of dried up leaves.
~James A. Kisner
