More Japanese Maples - Acer Palmatum "Sango Kaku"

This red-barked Japanese maple has very bright colors in the spring, even before the light green leaves start to show.
This picture was taken under a full moon in a break between the rain. Those white dots are stars.

That is a stunning picture. Out of curiousity, is it straight from the camera, or did it spend some time in Photoshop?


It is pretty much right out of the camera except for some cropping. The moonlight and the long exposure give the sky that color. The maple is wet from the rain so the color is richer than normal. I knew the tree would look good, but the sky color surprised me.
