Carmi made me do it!
Edit: I was standing in my living room, waiting for a friend/co-worker to pick me up for the day's work, when the leaves caught my eye. The sun was shining through them, and they appeared to be on fire. I thought to myself that this is something that Carmi would latch onto immediately! So I got the camera and went outside to shoot upwards into the tree. Thanks for all the nice comments on the pic.
