Bonsai tree: Small Scale Bonsai Magic

A pretty convincing Tamarack (American larch) forest. I think using a full scale background is part of the secret. The other part is just a very good job.

The series of photo shown here were posted on our Stone Lantern/Bonsai Bark facebook page by Dan Turner. To my eye, they present wonderful examples of small scale bonsai artistry that can only be the result of  deep concentration, nimble fingers, boundless patience and a great imagination. The only thing missing are photos that show whole plantings rather than just sections. That and a way to shrink down and slip into this magical world.
