Plant Life Winner: Japanese Maple

Japanese Maple
(Peter Lik)
“Standing beneath the canopy of this Japanese maple was an incredible feeling. I was in awe as the late afternoon light backlit the delicate leaves. Every branch told its own story, and I felt this special tree had so much to tell. As the sun sank toward the horizon, the tree came to life with an incredible display of color, shape, and texture—the rays burst into a star within the tree.” - Photographer Peter Lik
