Travel Theme: Light (2)

When Ailsa at Where’s My Backpack raised the Travel Theme: Light as the challenge, I have a couple of pictures in mind. The golden foliage at HongLou Temple, on which I have made my submission, was my first choice as I like the translucent look of the foliage.

Incidentally, the other picture was also on foliage but taken in the fall of 1985. The picture was taken at the Kew Garden in London when the ground was carpeted with fallen leaves.17-01-2005 4-47-10 PM_0005

The picture has been scanned with some lost of the original details and colors. Nevertheless, I like the rays of light which shone through the trees with some branches and leaves against the light.
