The View From Beneath

Posted by

The leaves on our Japanese maple are a deep burgundy. But, if you view them from beneath, even in the rain they are a delicious red.

Many thanks for visiting and though I may not always reply to your comments, know that they are greatly appreciated.

Magnificent! And you are right, these maples look very different depending on how the light hits them and where you are standing.

I am always enchanted and under the charm of your photosgraphies..
It is really magnificent: a beautiful photographic quality but also in feeling: there: the sweetness is characterized well..
I am a fan of your clichés...;-))))))
