Glimmer Among Leaves

This was shot at JingShan Park in Beijing. Originally I was going to try to get a timelapse of the Forbidden City, but somehow, on that day, the idea seemed trite or uninspiring to me. Instead i became curious of the setting sun backlighting the leaves of a certain tree, and decided to try to capture the changing bokeh as the sun set, as well as play around with manually adjusting the focus ring as the timelapse proceeded.
