Leaves of the Oriental Plane

I had to take another photo of just the leaves of this lovely tree, the autumn colours, with the afternoon sun shinning through are so warm. This tree's full name is Platanus Orientalis, and is found in Turkey.  Its fruits are ornamental only, but its twigs and roots are used in fabric dye, its leaves and bark are used in medicine and its wood is known as lacewood and is used for indoor furniture.


This photo was taken using the Canon EOS 1000D - In Raw - Shutter Speed 1/250 sec - Aperture Priority Mode - f14 - ISO 800 - Focal Length 300mm.
