Very nice trees in very nice pots - particularly the first, second, and last pots.

Yes, all three Sara Rayner pots...

The fifth pot, the small Zelkova broom, is also in a Sara Rayner pot.

That 'cutting' was the trunk chop from the top of the previously posted Trident at a Suthin workshop years ago. I put it into a pot and ignored it and it rooted and eventually found its way into a bonsai pot, almost as a raft planting. Thanks for the comments.

The Coral Bark maple looks much better in person...it was an air layer from the top of a garden center maple years ago.

john... curious about your tree photography...
is all but the tree, pot and minor bit of surface reflection, removed "electronically" ?

or... ?

Kevin...the trees are photographed against a black velvet background in an arrangement I have set up in my basement. These pics, I must confess, are taken using my Samsung Galaxy 6 phone as it's easier that getting out my 'real' cameras. I do sometimes Photoshop out some distractions, such as an errant tool or something at the bottom of the image, or a thin strip at the top that shows the rim of a light fixture. But, mostly the black velvet background and some cheap side lighting is sufficient with minimal fuss.

I love the clump trident maple, the Carolina Hornbeam, and the winged elm.  Great looking trees.  Thanks for sharing.  

Steve.

thanks john... it is a shame that just having that telephonicamera device close at hand keeps us from our good camera gear Wink
but they do produce some surprisingly decent images as evidenced above...

as time allows i should be coming up with a "set-up" that i can leave in place for photographing trees, such as you have done...

Kevin, as more and more digital SLRs are now wifi capable, that tendency to use simply what's at hand will be less. I guess I could upgrade. Cool
I bought both white and black velvet fabric and mounted each on a cardboard roll that the fabric store would have discarded, and hung them in my workshop area. I prefer the black background. Some of my best pics, however, were made in the greenhouse with the fabric rolls temporarily hung within. The diffuse light was great.
