Rain Drop and Autumn Leaf

I made this image this past fall in Great Falls National Park, Virginia. It had been raining on and off all morning and I turned my full attention to creating macro images of the many autumn leaves in a open field next to the river. For this image I used my 105 Macro lens in conjunction with a 25mm extension tube. I layed on my belly and focused the lens of a single rain drop on the leaf. By leaving my aperture wide open at f4 I was able to throw the rest of the image out of focus and drawl attention to the drop of water.
