A minimalistic extract that was provided to me when I was least expecting this. I arrived at this pond on Mount Desert Island in Somesville with the intention of shooting morning light silhouetting a small island in the middle of the pond, however the scene was just kind of flat and mundane that morning so as I was lamenting that a leaf fell off a tree to my right and slowly began coursing in front of me carried by a slow current. My first reaction was to change lenses to make a different kind of composition but I realized I wouldn't have time and instead composed this scene where suddenly the leaf was floating on a layer of clouds and water reflected together. I couldn't have planned it better.
