Cattail leaf turning yellow

Cattail Leaf Section Turning Yellow 3906

Another common water-loving plant not only in central Texas but over much of the world is the cattail. I photographed this yellowing section near the tip of a cattail leaf when I walked along a bit of the Greater Lake Creek Trail in Round Rock on August 1.

If you’re interested in photography as a craft, you’ll find that points 1, 4, 5, 9, 10, 12, 14 and 18 in About My Techniques are relevant to this photograph. That’s a lot of points for such a simple picture.
