Oriental Plane

This is a photo of the fruit of the Platanus Orientalis or Oriental Plane, a large deciduous tree that can be found in Turkey, we have one growing by our house.  The fruits are purely for decoration and I often use the fruits in my Christmas table decorations, they are good o-natural or sprayed silver or gold. The leaves and bark are used in medicine.  The twigs and roots produce a dye used in fabric.  The wood is know as lacewood and is used for indoor furniture.

This photo was taken using the Canon EOS 1000D - Shutter Speed 1/197 sec - Portrait Mode - f8 - ISO 400 - Focal Length 300mm.
