Illuminated from behind by bright sunlight, this Viburnum leaf glows with vibrant orange and yellow color. The bright yellow veins stand out in stark contrast to the rest of the orange leaf. Lit from the front, this leaf was very dull looking, but when lit from behind this amazing transformation took place. Digitally manipulated for artistic effect.

Wikipedia: Viburnum plicatum (Japanese: yabudemari, oodemari), common name Japanese snowball, is a species of flowering plant in the family Adoxaceae (formerly Caprifoliaceae), native to mainland China, Korea, Japan, and Taiwan. Growing to 3 m (10 ft) tall, it is a deciduous shrub. The leaves are opposite, 5-10 cm (2-4 in) long and 3-6 cm broad, simple ovate to oval, with a serrated margin. The flowers are produced in flat corymbs 5-10 cm (2-4 in) in diameter, comprising a central cluster of fertile yellowish-white flowers 5 mm diameter, surrounded by a ring of showy, sterile flowers 2-3 cm diameter, which act as a target guide to pollinating insects. The fruit is an ovoid blue-black drupe 8-10 mm long.
