Weekly Photo Challenge: Shine ( Through Trees and Leaves 5 )

This week’s photo challenge is Shine.

I like photographing against the light; in particular I like photographing trees and leaves against in coming light.

If the camera is set as Automatic, this usually poses a problem as the light sensor will sense there is strong light and the aperture will automatically reduce, giving a picture which is too dark.dscf3325

I intend to upload a series of photos which has been shot against the light.

Here is a photo taken up in the hills of  South Korea in the Autumn. I have never published it as it contains too much yellow and gold colors. Ideally, I like pictures like this with a balance of green or other colors; on this one, it not only shines, it glitters.

Please enjoy!

Dark clouds hung over but penetrated by colorful light.
