Autumn colors, but it's only summer
Miscellaneous unidentified Asian maple trees
Backlighting makes these leaves of a Japanese maple glow. It is actually pretty hard (for me) to capture the quality of the light, looking up from below. At least you can see a more vivid color in the leaves than is apparent when viewing them in direct lighting.
