2012, Day 135 - Controlled flare

Another photo from yesterday's jaunt along the gorge.  I love backlit foliage where you can see all the little veins snaking through the leaves and it is so much better when you can apply a sense of scale.  What is why I enjoy these photos taken from a really low angle.  The trees are towering over us and these simple plants, only half a foot tall, dominate the image.  Add a little bit of sun flare, slightly warmed in post, and you get a lovely little plant that almost seems to be straining for the light it needs to grow big and strong.
