Taking leaves

A good example of why photographers should be keeping their eyes open for the unexpected. I shot this while visiting a large art exhibition in Woudsend and in one of the rooms this scene in front of the stained glass window provided a perfect photo-opportunity - far better than any of the art exhibits. Many agreed: it became my 62nd  photograph to reach Flickr Explore, the 500 most interesting pictures of the day.
