I was sitting in my car under the trees on a sunny autumn afternoon having my lunch and listening to the radio when a gust of wind blew down a bunch of colorful leaves on to the windshield of the car. The light from the sun fell on to the leaves at an angle the left them practically glowing. The impact was something I wanted to try to capture, but unfortunately I did not have my camera with me. I grabbed a few of the leaves and took them home with me.
The sun was shining brightly through the windows in the front of the house the next morning. The angle seemed just right to try to try to capture the effect I had seen the previous day. Here is what I saw. Hope it is effective!
