Little Red Tree

A short walk up the road toward the edge of town is a small fenced-off park. Inside there’s a little maple tree that, if you can catch it in the right light, makes a fiery flame of red-hot foliage like a flare. I was happy with the photos I got yesterday afternoon. Tapanui, West Otago, New Zealand.

  1. There’s an only red tree just this color in the hill country, in the middle of the pasture. I look for it every time I’m in the area in autumn. My timing wasn’t right last fall, but maybe next year!

    1. Love ‘only’s like you describe .. we have some favourites like a large oak on its own in a crop/grass field just south of our town and a big purple beech in a similar field just north of town.
