Photo of the month: the luminous colour of Autumn leaves

Autumn-(1).jpgAutumn leaves are one the great photographic cliches. The subtle reds, yellows, browns and oranges are irresistible. For that reason, it's almost impossible to find a way to photograph them that hasn't been done a million times before.
I like using the low autumn sun as a backlight. I took backlighting to its logical extreme and shot these Maple leaves on a lightbox, almost like scientific specimens.

Similar pictures were taken by Fox Talbot and Anna Atkins, back in the mid 19th Century.
There's nothing new under the Sun!
