  12. Stunning smattering photos as usual, and very simple clever titles and captions, Jane. Love the contrast of the red and yellow colours in the first photo. It’s such a well-composed shot. Hope autumn treted you well and take care this festive season. Happy holidays πŸ™‚

  14. Ginko’s have always been my favorites. When I was younger I would put the leaves in between book pages and press dry them that way.

  18. Oh glorious ginkgoes, Jane! Just stunning! Are these in your neighborhood? I miss seeing the ginkgo grove on the Sacramento State Univ campus. It was a sea of them every Autumn. Nothing like that here in Eastern WA. Thanks for sharing! I hope you don’t mind my addition in the comment here. https://terriwebsterschrandt.files.wordpress.com/2017/11/campus-ginkos.jpg

  24. A phrase came to mind I’ve heard time and time again in pastel work; “Very painterly”. Many of the tree shots had a “painting” effect to me (but it’s 4:00 AM!).

  25. The best time to plant a tree is twenty years ago.
    The second best time is now.

  29. The second and “Last Hurrah” pulled me in the most but I greatly enjoyed all of them. Ginkgos are just lovely and your geek out shows that perfectly. When I think of leaves as instruments, aspens are the ones that come to mind as their rustling is unmistakable and beautiful.

  31. What a treat, Jane, a gallery of images of my favorite tree of all. Maybe the best part is that I suspect these are not the last wonderful ginkgo photos I’ll see from you. The knobby, curved branches in ‘Loud & Proud’ are very cool and look great against the blank canvas of a white sky. ‘Dreaming’ is indeed a dream, a fountain of ginkgo fans to fall into headlong. The glistening water beads are fresher than summer rain, the black and white is smoothly toned but roughly textured – a delight for the mind. ‘Curbside’ and ‘Carpeted’ remind me of the many times I reveled in the crisp gold of fallen ginkgo leaves, picking them up to compare the shapes, fascinated by the differences in each one. Long stem, short stem, wide fan, narrow fan, lobed or not, I love them all. You have pictured some sizable trees here! I can’t wait to get myself down to L.A. to reacquaint myself with these old friends. Thank you!

    • Hi Lynn, So glad you enjoyed these, as I know they are your favorite tree. Very true what you said about the variety of leaf shapes– nature’s details are astounding. Quite a few neighborhoods near us have Ginkgoes lining the streets which make for some exciting walks. Thanks so much for sharing in the love. πŸ’›

  33. This geeked out Gink (my high school nickname) loves my namesake Ginko trees and each and every one of these images, Jane. Our town planted one in the circle at the end of our street so I look forward to doing some captures of my own but until then can enjoy them whenever they are shared by you. I guess the tree guy in town didn’t think one of each gender was called for so I don’t know if I’ll see fertile seeds.

  36. Beautiful! Ginkgos always look like they were sketched out when the universe was just starting to think about trees,
    maybe by someone’s kid, just a simple trunk and branches and a simple lovely design to the leaves.
