anyone ever catch that rare documentary when the russia communists finally allowed camera crew documentary on their nature?
the most stunning nature i ever saw, made the sierras look tame
was called wild Russia i believe

acer wiki: plant native to Japan, Korea, China, eastern Mongolia, and southeast Russia

Piker. Walter Pall's progressions here are as good photography of fair to middlin' trees as you're likely to find anywhere. I've been stealing them for about 3 years and have just under 600 shots including some of his garden. I have them cycle every three minutes on my two monitors. I format them to fit my screens, annotate, group and organize them by tree number in continuous seasons from spring, summer, fall, then winter key, so I watch my favorite trees cycle through the year. A hundred years from now Walter Pall will still be well known because he has shown the world more of his trees than any other bonsai artist, maybe more than any other ten. The Greeks believed that a man was immortal as long as people could remember his name. Walt's gonna be around for a long, long time.

I have read a few articles about trout/salmon fishing in the Russian rivers. Unreal. Talk about an intense natural place.

You are speaking of the Amur Maple, Acer shirasawanum, AKA A. japonicum
