Autumn Leaves Macro 4 with Impressionistic Finish.
Macro of Autumn Leaves. Fall is here and the Sweet Gum Tree leaves are changing. This capture has lovely shades of yellow, orange, and green colors against a shallow depth of field background that includes some blue sky.
Liquidambar styraciflua, commonly called American sweetgum, sweetgum, sweet gum, hazel pine, American-storax, bilsted, red-gum, satin-walnut, star-leaved gum, or alligator-wood is a deciduous tree in the genus Liquidambar native to warm temperate areas of eastern North America.
Liquidambar styraciflua is a medium-sized to large tree, growing anywhere from 33-50 feet in cultivation and up to 150 feet in the wild, with a trunk up 2-3 feet in diameter, on average. The leaves usually have five (but sometimes three or seven) sharply pointed palmate lobes. They are 3-5 inches wide on average and have three distinct bundle scars. The rich dark green, smooth, shiny, star-shaped leaves generally turn brilliant orange, red, and purple colors in the autumn. This autumnal coloring has been characterized as not simply a flame, but a conflagration. Its reds and yellows compare to that of the maples (Acer), and in addition it has the dark purples and smoky browns of the ash (Fraxinus).
