Leaves from below

Schachticoke Ridge, on the Appalachian Trail near Thayer Brook.

I shot these on a hike with Gary a month ago. We were right next to the giant tulip trees I’ve shot many time before there. The light was such that looking straight up through low-hanging leaves back-lit the leaves creating a great effect. Focus was tough as there was a light breeze. These are the only two out of a few dozen that worked.
