Cercidiphyllum JaponicumToday’s image is of a Cercidiphyllum Japonicum – a small tree which I just love in the Autumn. The colours are delightful and rich and, as can be seen, very varied. I took some time working out the composition of the tree as there were many options I could have gone for. However, I really like this one.

Cercidiphyllum JaponicumI’m sure an even closer (macro?) image would also have been very effective.

This was an image I was supposed to post last Autumn but I was just about to embark on a new website so I decided to leave it until the new site was live…. little did I know it would be nine months later! Things just throw you off your best intentions!!

Many thanks to Rod Bennington for letting me know the name of the tree. Now I’m off to see my friend Stuart Townsend – a fellow keen photographer who’s family happens to own Daleside, a cracking nursery near Harrogate! I must have one for my front garden!

As usual, this image and more can be found in the Innerscapes section of the website – enjoy!
