I particularly had this tree in mind to visit in the Japanese Garden part of the Powerscourt estate, but i don’t think i was prepared for just how amazingly red it would be. There were actualy a few of them, of slightly different varieties – if i was a bit more of a nature geek i could tell you but, well, i’m not, so I’ll just show you:
This is a really truthful representation of the colour of this tree. Seriously.
After that crazy red, I hope you can still enjoy the subtle loveliness of this one against the green background…
There were a few other trees in various shades of red to orange and peach and golden yellows. So, so, pretty.
That’s the selection after I narrowed it down from quite a few more… i almost had to be dragged away!
If you get the chance (and we have another clear day like sunday was) get yourself down there for a look before it’s just bare branches. It’s well worth the trip.
That’s Japanese maple, a lovely tree with deliciously sensitive leaves. After seeing this post, I like to have one in my own garden, now… You know have to make best use of those low numbers on the lens.
Love Japanese maples – we have one in our front garden! Stunning colours and lovely shots :-)
So nice to come across your work. Feel like we might be kindred spirits! I love your way of capturing images, full of thought and care. These pics are engulfing me with warmth and beauty, looking forward to delving into this site:~)
Ace(r) pic,s :-)
Acers / japanese maples are my all-time favourite tree. We planted four in the front garden of our last house but don’t have any here… yet. You’ve reminded me I need to get on that!
