With the arrival of spring (sort of, it snowed last Sunday) and a new macro lens from Richard and Amy of Red Leaf, it was time to start in on what I look forward to every year, taking photos of backlit leaves. I would have to say my favorite is the Indian-Plum or Oemleria cerasiformis. Below this is the one with the small oval leaves growing upright off a branch. Emmy often questions if we need so many photos of leaves, perhaps because they fill a large portion of our hard drive. To this I say you can never have too many photos of Oemleria cerasiformis. The photos below have been shot over the last month both in our yard and around Victoria. Enjoy!
