Here in Texas there is a place called the Lost Maples.  It is exactly as it sounds, an area of land with maple trees and "lost" because maple trees aren't native to Texas at all.  They do seem to thrive in the hill country though and is a beautiful place to visit.  The photo I used as inspiration was taken of a maple leaf just lazily drifting in the creek.  The water was so clear that it really didn't show up in the photo so I added a little "water" effect.

James 4:8
Come close to God and He will come close to you.

Hi Carolina - I had wondered if the effect would work - glad to hear it did.
