Some of my favorite subjects to capture are back-lit leaves. In the Southern Appalachians, we have a lot of them! I love in the morning, when the sun is still low, and the sunlight shines through the leaves, allowing you to see everything inside. The leaves just pop with color, giving the image really cool contrast. This image was taken in the morning during a fall trip to the Smokies in 2014. We camped in the Deep Creek area near Bryson City, NC and as the sun rose, it back-lit all these bright yellow leaves. Of course I had to grab my camera. I used telephoto length to reach high up in the tree.
