NatureFootstep: Inspiring Light #53

Monday's theme at NatureFootstep is 'Inspiring/Catching The Light'. The emphasis is on how light (or lack of light) makes the photo. I don't usually take part in this theme, but decided to give it a go this week. 

BACKLIT OAK LEAVES
Backlit Leaves 1

  1. I love the way these three leaves catch so much of the light, and the others only catch a bit of the light, just at their edges! And the bokeh are superb!!!

      I spotted this little pool of sunlight on the leaves and knew I had to get the shot :-))

    1. Thanks Debby :-))

      I didn't notice the spider-threads until after I had loaded the photo onto the computer.

  10. this photo would really look well enlarged and in a frame-I just got back in from a walk in our woods which is full of oaks and hickory trees-so I really liked this one

  12. fantastic shot, well spotted, I really like photos ( and paintnigs) that emphasise the contrast between light and dark.
