New Jersey Nature Photography: Sweetgum Leaves

When shooting nature photography, it would seem that the best opportunities occur as far off the beaten path as possible.  However, with a lens with closeup functions it is possible to eliminate all context from a photograph.  Also, a telephoto lens can draw in far away scenery with no relation to where the photographer positioned his/her feet.  The photo in this post was actually taken in a Target parking lot in New Jersey… but who have guessed it?
