I love the detail in this photo. Also kudos on the title. I hate when people don't even put titles, when they can do so much for you. I can really feel the heartbeat of the leaf from up close here. Slow for the coming winter, but still there.
The title for this photograph is so perfect. I love how you captured the detail of the leaf, and that it is zoomed in without the view of any edges. Let's one's mind wonder. While looking at this, I feel the heartbeat of nature is trees, and the leaves, of course, are what make that possible. So, the very heartbeat is this wonderfully crimson leaf.
