Illuminated Leaves

As we were walking up the hill at Baltimore woods, I looked behind me and was struck by the sunlit leaves of the tree.  I took a couple photos of the whole scene, but it wasn’t speaking to me, as there were dead branches and brambles etc that were taking away from what I was trying to convey.  I ended up with just a few illuminated leaves. While the one leaf isn’t struck by the sun- it emphasizes the effect of the sun on the others.
