The light underneath a forest canopy is almost always perfect. It’s even better when it’s autumn, the sun is a little lower and the light seems to be a little more delicate. Every now and then it hits the perfect spot, just begging to be photographed.
I came across these maple leaves that were in that exact perfect spot. Beautifully lit, bursting with colour and ready to be photographed by anyone who passes by. Lucky for me I was that person. I really wanted to focus on the leaves and put the tree trunk into the background. In the enlarged prints of this, the leaves practically leap off the paper.
