In addition to the massive nebari and the lush soft green foliage contrasted with the soft creme pot, you might appreciate the near perfect photograph. It was taken by the omnipresent Joe Noga (all the photos in this post are his as are numerous other bonsai photos featured on this blog and elsewhere). As you can see, the tree is a Willow leaf ficus. No mention is made of the artist. The photo is from the 2016 Winter Silhouette Bonsai Expo gallery.

I can’t say with certainty that this year’s Winter Silhouette Bonsai Expo will be the best yet, but there’s a good chance it will. Bonsai is still relatively new here in North America, so improvement from year to year is to be expected. And judging from last year’s photos, the show should be, at the very least, excellent and well worth a trip to North Carolina

Here's a great candidate for a winter silhouette. I won't bother to guess what it is

Larch are one of only a handful of deciduous conifers in the world. Most larch turn yellow in the fall, like this one, though I have seen reddish needles on at least one species. There are thirteen (give or take) larch species that form an almost continuous ring around the colder regions of the northern hemisphere (with breaks for the North Atlantic and Bering Sea). My guess is this one is a Tamarack (Larix laricina), a species native to parts of the Northeast U.S. and much of Canada
