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.

there's nothing like the freshens of the brand new, spring leaves. this is very well executed in terms of exposure.
