Spent a few days in Oregon and was amazed at the trees and diversity there. This is a tree native to Japan, but I've never seen one like this on my several visits to Japan. Go figure. Will definitely be spending a lot more time shooting in this incredible place! Go Oregon :) !

That's awesome and beautiful 
 
Tom Anderson. Visit Ashland, Oregon. Oh. My. Magical. Please.
 
Happy to see your posts in my feed again Tom! 
 
That is insanely psychedelic. (and it is beautiful too)
 
Central Oregon is amazing. Next time check out central Idaho, too. 
 
Any idea what the name of this tree is? I recall seeing something similar where I live, but we simply call it "Fire Tree".

That's my former home. LOVE
 
next time your around portland. Let's go out and shoot something.
 
Shhh, don't tell anyone about Oregon :)
 
What thus was taken yesterday? Not the Fall season!?
 
It looks like a fire tree!!! At first, it looks creepy with those branches but when you look deeper to it,you'll see a nice place to meditate and connect with mother earth :)xoxo
 
Surreal! Excellent artsy shot. Just good to still see you around, Tom: comforting. I spent a lot of years on MySpace in its heyday..met a lot of fine folks..a lot of good memories. But after MySpace I couldn't EVER see myself on Facebook. Google+ is a far better alternative -- eh?

+Lisa Silvey that's uncanny that you found that! Same tree in the photograph from almost the same angle... and a different season evident by the flowers on the bushes. +Tom Anderson was there a "take photo here" mark on the ground? :)
 
Anyone know what the actual name of this tree is? I really would like to find one for my Japanese garden 
 
wow!!! what a beautiful seen. thanks
 
Beautiful~ perfect!
 
From the looks of it that kind of resembles Lithia Park in Ashland. If not worth a visit. They have a small but nice Japanese garden there. 
 
I just visited friends in Portland 2 weeks ago. Awesome waterfalls! Mount hood is beautiful! Great beer & lattes! I want moss on my trees!! Agreed! Go Oregon! 
 
this is so beautiful. Keep on sharing these amazing pics. Thank you!!
 
thx Selina - do you know the variant? it seems like lots of maples have straight trunks. This "tree," btw, is quite small - not even 6 feet tall... I was crouched on the ground under it when I took the shot.
 
Oregon is a great place and I'm glad to call the state my home.

+Tom Anderson You REALLY need to do Japan in the fall...Japanese maples are my all time favorite tree and even though it was past peak colors when I was there it was still so amazing. :) This shot is gorgeous!
 
I wish, i was autumn, wild, passionate and Full of enthusiasm and colorful...
 
هذا رائع جداااااااا

Stunning image my friend!
 
Now that is a scene I would love to paint!  and i just might.  Beautiful
 
I'm sure +Tom Anderson if you go back, one of the staff at the Japanese garden would be more than happy to tell you what cultivar it is.
 
+Tayoke Gyi it's at the Portland Japanese Garden; you might miss it, since the tree is only about 5 feet tall :-)

I love it it so beauty ful the moment I can't emaging 
 
Classic, mature Japanese maple, beautifully pruned, exquisitely photographed!
 
Oregon keeps popping up and all the Oregon people I have met and who stayed in my cottage are great!
 
+Tom Anderson checkout my bike ride pics. Oregon is beautiful beyond trees as well :)

Oregon is amazing for a bunch of reasons. We have stunning nature, stunning wildlife, amazing weather during spring, summer, and fall. The people are some of the nicest and most hospitable people I've ever encountered. The entire state has a small town feel to it, especially when you realize everyone drives the speed limit.

Best thing though, you can live in the city and play in nature so easily. Nature is literally in your back yard. 
 
What is it! On the side I am,a tree steward for thw city I live in but I mostly just study trees indigenous to northeast america.
 
Gorgeous pic though! This came out incredibly awesome!
 
Beautiful just beautiful
 
Looks like a Flamboyan ( in spanish) mostly seen at the Caribbean. Beautiful tree !! 
 
This is la poinciana its my Island national flower ST. KITTSthey're beautiful around spring time!

+Mike Adamczyk nice catch! Also not to rain on the love fest but the Japanese maple is probably one of the most commonly planted trees in suburbia. Portland anyway.

i love japanese culture!
 
Different soil produces different colors (?)
 
I wonder if Oregon was connected to Japan when the world's continents were one (the 2nd Pangaea) ? That would explain the Japanese tree being there
 
pretty! hey tom! what do you think of the new myspace?
 
Very beautiful, I visited there one time

Oregon trails, Arizona (4 corners), Washington State has an incredible tree collection that takes talent to photograph from trams.  It's a lot of rope work in some places but awesome views.  This tree looks nestled.
 
Sublime, il n'y a pas pas d'autre qualificatif, comment obtenez vous ce genre de cliché, avec un appareil photo spécial ? Ou exposition longue avec appareil photo sur trépied ? Bravo Tom; à bientôt pour d'autres belles photographies....
