This is absolutely stunning! I literally said "woah!" seeing how large those trees were. We have a 3' tree in our front yard that still has a lot of growing to do!

I guess I must have a thing for tangled gnarled and twisted branches, as they're mostly the type of trees I fave, but the way you depict them is by far my favorite type of composition.

Lovely tree, great colors. :aww:

breath-consuming!!! I saw your pics on google when I was googling acers and now finally I have a chance to fave them.. amazing... where were they taken? I'd guess Japan because I never saw so big, old and such perfectly shaped palmatum anywhere else.. on the other hand I didn't see that many gardens yet..

umm not that I know of. or it's private.. I'm from Slovenia (Europe) and japanese maples are kinda new trend here :) and not many know japanese culture or aren't interested in it so much. But I'm studying japanese so there's a big chance I'll go straight to Japan to visit their gardens ;)
Anyway thank you for your gorgeous photos and lots of inspiration! Will be stopping by a lot probably ;) Have a nice day :hug:

It looks like you have a botanical garden [link] but I'm not sure if it has any Japanese maples.

haha :D I know that one, but no, no maples there. Thank you for your effort ;) Though I'm kinda happy you didn't find it because that would be pretty embarassing- I'm from Slovenia and I should know that :D we're really small country..

haha this tree I think is very famous, i've seen many other people photograph this one as well. @_@ if it's the right one I'm thinking about. Is it by a pond (lake) whatever you want to call that body of water? Well anyway this is a beatiful picture. Great job.

Your art is breathtaking. I send the hug right back to you. You capture the essence of things. This is true art. Some can do it with words and in a paragraph you can see and feel and smell the fragrance of a whole other world. Your photographs are like this. Such life, such incredible ambience.
Really your work is small eternal treasure.
