The Gallery - Trees

The theme of Tara's Gallery this week is trees.

I knew when I saw the theme I was going to delve into my archives this week.

I absolutely LOVE this tree.

Click the pic to view it large

I think it's a Japanese Maple tree and it stands in prime position outside the Aquarium in Vancouver, Canada.

As soon as I saw it I was itching to take a photo of it and I'm so glad I did.  The colour contrast just takes your breath away.

Forgive the extremely lame tree pun but I 'spruced' it up a little with an Orton effect.  You can view the original here.

Now head over to The Gallery and check out all the amazing entries....
