It’s late summer up here in the Northern Hemisphere and some folks have reached the point at which the novelty of hot weather has worn off and they’ve all but forgotten what it feels like to shiver. If that sounds like you, please allow the Department of Awesome Natural Phenomena to distract you for just a moment with this amazing photo taken by Redditor SearonTrejorek.
A couple winters ago in South Carolina, at the Hardin Gardens on the Winthrop University canvas, SearonTrejorek (after a few unsuccessful tries) managed to peel a perfect layer of ice off a leaf of a Magnolia tree. The flawless ice leaf was very fragile and quick to melt, but he was able to hold it in his hand long enough to capture its existence in this refreshingly chilly photo.

Leaf-cutting Artist Omid Asadi was born in Iran and now lives in Sale, Greater Manchester, England where he gathers fallen leaves and uses a craft knife and needle to transform them into exquisitely beautiful and expressive works of art. He even recreated The Scream by Edvard Munch on a leaf.
"Art for me is the way of looking differently to this world and around myself.I started to think why nobody paid attention to these beautiful leaves and trod on them, because of their name - if they were called flowers we wouldn’t tread on them at all! I wanted to give the leaves another Life and make art from them."

Inspired by watching a caterpillar munching away on a leaf, Spanish artist Lorenzo Duran Manuel Silva painstakingly transforms dried leaves into delicate works of art.
"By studying various techniques by the Japanese and Germans, as well working at his craft, Silva is able to make his creations stand out."
Lorenzo carefully cuts away sections of the leaves, creating enchanting scenes, silhouettes, intricate geometric patterns, or even negative images.
