Bonsai-San as We Speak…

This unusual full cascade Juniper will no doubt put off some of our anti-deadwood folks, but to my eyes, it's a a highly expressive, dynamic tree. Cascade shots are normally taken from a point that shows the tree cascading down one side of the pot, but in this case the pot is hidden by the tree, which creates a whole different effect.
All the photos shown here were taken by Andres Bicocca at this weekend’s European Bonsai San Show in Saulieu France. Andres’ only text with the photos reads… Viaje a Francia “Saulieu 2017.” Non of the trees or artists are identified (no blame, they were no doubt taken on the fly and I’m just happy to have them). I took the liberty of cropping all the photos and brightening some that were on the dark side.

I'm going to go way out on a limb (so to speak) and guess that this is a European beech. Don't quote me though (see the next caption for why you shouldn't)
If I were to guess, I'd say Hinoki cypress. But then I've been wrong so many times that I should be embarrassed (sometimes I am embarrassed, but I try to get over it and move on to my next mistake)
This one looks like a close cousin to our lead tree
SPECIAL OF THE DAY
Root-over-rock Trident maple. You can tell by the leaves and so many root-over rock bonsai are Tridents anyway
This looks a lot like a Japanese beech.
Here's the tree from the top of the post. This time with the whole display
