Backlit Leaf


When the fall colours come to the trees, film sales must soar. There is certainly plenty of temptation for the photographer. This particular maple leaf was photographed in Burnaby's Central Park, just east of Vancouver, Canada. A 55mm micro-Nikkor lens was used, shutter speed and aperture were not recorded.

Water on the leaf helps the image. It would be nice to say this was the early morning dew, but reality it was the afternoon shower.
