To see this same tree just a few weeks ago, see this earlier post.
A lovely green image, full of life! My gaze is fixed on the green moss like a fragrant and perfumed pillow to rest your head in the center of the image ... it in the first ... a picture that explains very well the late fall. Best regards, Adela

Having had it's time of glory it now settles in for a long winter sleep confident that spring will come again! A great follow up shot GJC! Well done! ;-)

Yes the leaves drop and the difference is dramatic...but now we take a deep breath and accept nature's path..and those of us who are willing, turn to enjoy the beauty of the tree shapes, unfettered by foliage ...we find that winter indeed has a beauty of it's own that some of us do not even think about. The green that you are fortunate to keep year round helos lend a color spice to the environment...Lovely photo, GJC ! All the best!

With the naked tree we can better admire the beauty of the garden and of the building architecture.

Japan as I love it! Wonderful image!

When one looks at such an image....one falls in love with Japan! (But...this is NOT the Japan you and I know day by day, is it?!)

@Japanalia: Indeed, it is the part of Japan that I love the most. As you say, it is not the everyday-grocery shopping, 9 to 5 job, running-errands Japan. But I do try to visit the Japan in this photo as often as I can. We are fortunate in Kyoto to have these little reminders sprinkled about much of the rest.
I agree with Japanalia, but I extend my love for all the Nature and people who loves Her. Is great to preserve vegetation in the city as "islands" in a concrete "ocean". The rapport between concrete and vegetation depend only on (traditional) love of peoples for the Nature. Love of money favors concrete expansion, alas!
