Life Lines, Japanese maple, Washington Park Arboretum, Seattle, Washington, USA
The twisting, reaching boughs of mature Japanese maples intrigue and enchant. In the early fall, the leaf color is spectacular, a bright mix of green, yellow and orange. Cold and damp, and hidden by spreading boughs from passersby, I spent a couple of hours working the angles.
