A maple tree growing nearly horizontally over a pond is beginning to bud with its red blossoms. Three sliders have crawled out of the water to sun themselves on a branch that reaches into the water. The dark pond waters are disturbed and reflect the red hues and pale greens of the few green plants in this mid-winter image. Due to the use of the lens extender and the bright sunlight, the colors have taken on an almost unnatural quality and the image is a bit painterly at the edges such that the image almost looks like a photos processed in the 1970s.
Photo taken with my Nikon F3 HP using a Tokina 35-105mm lens paired with a Komura Telemore95 II lens extender and FujiFilm 400, f/3.5, 1/250
