Local Flora

I processed the Allium two ways to show that color creates a mood. I know the Ailanthus is considered to be a weed tree, but I love it. It shades us from the sun in our 3rd floor apartment.

Japanese Maple

There are lovely little Japanese Maple trees in the small front yards a few blocks away.

Taken with a Nikon D750 with an AF-S Micro Nikkor 105mm f2.8 G ED lens. I photographed with the intent of collection images for composites. I merged multiple images in Photoshop as layers and used masking to create these composites.

Planting Fields Trees

There are a variety of wooded landscapes at the Arboretum. The Japanese maple looks like a large Bonsai.
