I went out in the cold rain the other day and took about 50 photos, mostly of crabapple tree blooms ready to burst. But in my back yard I was struck by the wet aspen leaves stuck together and backlit by the sky. This is one of the last photos I took but it’s the one I ended up liking most.
I offer both a color version and a black and white version. Take your pick between the “reality” of green tree leaves or the texture, lines and light that make up the “bones” of the photo.
