The afternoon sun provides an opportunity to shoot this Oak Tree with fresh Spring Leaves backlit with vibrant new leaves.

I like the contrast between the translucent quality of light through the backlit leaves vs. the hard light of the sunstar. Hope you've recovered from the Yosemite trip...

Beautiful sunstar Scott - I knew you were working that tree for a reason - well done! Are you ready to buy stock in Starbucks yet?

That's just about the coolest, sharpest sunburst i think I have ever seen! I just love the tree and its wonderful shape...as I always say, you have me hook, line, and sinker if you have an oak tree in teh frame and this is a beauty! Look at the shapes in there. Just a wonderful composition to enjoy! Have a great weekend, Scott!

excellent back-lit shot! the light adds a lot of vivid colour and vibrancy to the leaves making them glow very positively indeed!
