The Light that Shines through the Ginkgo Leaves

I was thinking of drafting a post on the Trees and Roots on the Milford Track; but on going through my archive, I found this picture which I thought should be uploaded now.DSCF2555B

The light was shining through the foliage, when we visited the HongLuo Temple in the outskirts of Beijing a couple of years ago.

I have seen many ginkgo trees before but this one was at its best with the light shining through, making the leaves more or less translucent.

  1. Beautiful. Ginkgo nuts came here to Japan a long ago and they grew. Now is the time for the leaves to fall and carpet the sidewalks. Crowds of people go out just to walk and see.
