"Red"..Like Fire


I thought of this tree that sits on the corner or our street when I read the challenge. No matter what the season this Japanese Maple is soo beautiful! I was standing under, looking up when I took this shot. When the sun sets in the afternoon and comes through, the tree looks like it is on fire.......

Wow, what a gorgeous tree! So vibrant! I love the green in the pic, it really sets off the red/orange of the tree. Lovely, simply lovely!

I love Japanese maples. I love them when they're a deep deep red, almost purplish, like a flowering plum. How neat to be able to get an Autumnal shot in April!
