After a spring rain I noticed the brilliant red of the Japanese maple leaf that had fallen onto a beautifully green leaf of a plant below the tree. With the freshness of the rain the colors were vivid and the leaves shimmered from the wet and the soil was dark. Since nature had provided such a wonderful display of shapes, textures, colors, and sheen, I just had to come up with a composition I liked.
