I think people who observed me this morning chasing the falling leaves with my camera must have thought I was crazy. Photographing  a leaf as it floats to the ground is not easy as it looks. It comes down to luck, and in this case about a hundred bad and blurry frames to get this one snap. Nikon D700, Nikkor 24-120mm f/4, Nikon SB-800 strobe
