The sun shining through the forest canopy causes lens flare, creating transparent hexagonal shapes in the camera lens filled with interesting patterns like those seen through a microscope.  Muted autumn foliage shines through the flare like golden reflections in the water.

Maple leave shine brilliantly golden in the autumn sun on a background of soft , shadowy, dark green forest beyond.

A cluster of maple leaves basks in the autumn sunlight. In the center of the group, a leaf seems to catch a pool of liquid light like a dish.
