What wonderful contrast between the leaf (underside) and trunk of a Silver Poplar. Not just the colour either – solidity/fragility – fleeting/long lasting – rough/soft.

I like this shot from further back too. The white on the tree is so “un-naturaly” bright it almost ceases to be a leaf and becomes an enigmatic sign – the symbol of a leaf rather than a leaf itself.
