Copper beech leaves contre-jour, in Ham, Wiltshire
Copper beech leaves contre-jour, in Ham, Wiltshire
The leaves are dark purple, almost tending towards black, from the other side (see SU3262 : Copper beech leaves in Ham, Wiltshire)- as very little light is reflected from the leaves. However, some light passes through the leaves - the green light not absorbed by the leaves and used in photosynthesis (which mainly uses the red and blue parts of the spectrum).

With the sun less directly behind them, leaves become the coppery red seen in the background here.
