I had taken the wrong viewpoint initially with this week's theme and was thinking of a viewpoint from the ground rather than a viewpoint of the ground. After seeing the two previous postings I searched my files and actually I had quite a few ground viewpoint shots but I thought this one with the Canadian maple leaf suited the theme and especially since in two weeks we will be having the 150th Anniversary of the founding of Canada on July 1st.

I found the contrast between the maple leaf and the ground serves to make the leaf stand out in the image.

Very appropriate Jan! Like you I wondered for a while what the subject actually meant, and eventually decided it was a viewpoint looking down.
Your picture is doubly appropriate with the forthcoming celebrations.

What could be more perfect for the Sunday Theme then a beautiful Canadian maple leaf! You always seem to come up with a winning choice.
