Kew Gardens Ash Sapling Sweet Chestnut Trunk by aegiandyad Kew Gardens Ash Sapling Sweet Chestnut Trunk by aegiandyad
This has been rescued from almost complete obscurity. I could hardly see anything until I pressed the 'Auto tone' button in Photoshop. There is a version without the botanical tree tag showing but in this shot the label is just clear enough to read if you zoom in a lot [after I spared it the 'over lighting' and increased the sharpness a bit].

I just love how the whole background is greys and greens, but then... throw the sapling in and it's just bursting with beautiful golds, bright yellows, and orangey-reds!! (whaaat? orangey-red? what kind of word is that?!)

Really, it's a cool rescued photo. :)

The mountain ash or rowan is spectacular in autumn. This is a larger leaved relative of that, by the looks. It grieves me that we may be in the process of losing over 90% of the nation's ash trees, just as we lost millions of our elm trees last century, to fungal infection. Some of my favourite trees in Kew Gardens belong to the genus Fraxinus [the ash trees] and I would hate not to be able to show them to my grandchildren. [link] [RIP ?]
