Photo of the day: Spring maple

Spring maple, originally uploaded by The Bacher Family.
I was visiting my sister's house last month and had to take a walk outside because of my allergies (I know, that sounds unusual, but my biggest allergy is to cats). I had my camera with me, so I walked around looking for things to photograph, and these brand new leaves on the maple tree in the yard caught my eye. So new, so perfect, so nicely lit! I was even more pleased whn I converted it to black and white--the lighting is so crisp and clean, with nice bokeh behind. The color version's nice, too, but in my opinion the black and white captures the beautiful tones better.
