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.
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.
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.
They are really beautiful!
Beautiful! I love gingko trees!
They are lovely.
A beautiful sight! And I can feel the sunshine, even though the photo. 🙂
It was a memorable moment in time!
Beautiful tree, I have never seen one, it is breathtaking! Thank you for sharing this lovely bright golden glamorous beauty!
Just love ginkgo!
I love the light and your golden tree leaves. Nice!
Thanks for liking the picture, Ruth!
Lovely! Light adorns everything. “-)
Yes, just think of the world before God gives us the light!
As soon as I saw your photo Michael, I knew the Gingko trees were in Beijing….I love them and your photo is gorgeous.
I only realize in recent years that there are some many ginkgo trees in Beijing.
beautiful and gorgeous leaves catching the light of the sun.
Thanks Cat for liking the picture!
