“Red Maple Spring” – Stouffville, Ontario

“Red Maple Spring” - Stouffville, Ontario

As spring continues, more colour and new life emerges, following the cycle of death and re-birth. The delicate structures of new leaves exploding from once tight buds are part of that cycle. A few short days ago, these red maple leaves were just bumps on a branch. Now, you can see the future shape in miniature. The soft morning light created a nice back-lit effect that shows all the structures nicely and soft focus blurs another cluster of leaves in the background. There is something soothing about these photos. I think it’s the freshness and promise each sign of new life holds.
