Leaves

While in Redmond we visited a dog park with a long "dog walking}" trail. While there I noticed these new leaves against the white sky. I liked the pattern and the way they were back lighted and decided to take a few shots.

The clarity is spot on. Your exposure is perfect. I love the dark veins and the light green of the leaves. So simple, yet so elegant. Well seen and captured Don.
