    Default a walk under or visit

    " A walk uder or visit to the canopy?? of leaves puts familiar subjects in new perspectives and adds a few suprises."

    I wonder if "a visit" would make sence?

    Is this referring to a specific canopy of leaves?

    No. I'm just practicing English.
    Let me try to answer your question. I might well say "A walk under a canopy of leaves"? What about "visit"?

    One doesn't really "visit" a canopy of leaves. One can visit (I'd prefer go to) a forest to walk under a canopy of leaves.
