Sun peeking through a leaf

Sun peeking through leaf

I made this picture in the forest of Anloo. When the leafs are falling, the sun takes his chance and illuminates the forest floor. Leafs stay green because of chlorophylls, but when theh days get shorter, the amount of clorophyll decreases and leafs start to turn into a beautiful colors. Eventually the leafs will off, attrtibuting to a new layer of soil where new trees can grow. Pretty smart system!
