Elm leaves from below, August 2008

The light filtering through the canopy that afternoon was magical. I really don’t think there’s any better light than bright sunshine through a canopy of leaves. The light from above lit up these leaves as I walked by so I had to stop and see if I could capture the delicateness of the leaves, glowing from above.

I love the pattern of the leaves and the branches, the photo turned out exactly as I had seen it. The fuzzy points of light in the background add a touch of magic to the shot, one that has become a favourite of mine.
