The lone survivor – I chose to take this photo of the Japanese maple tree from our backyard. It is the fifth one we have had through the years, and is the only one that has survived out of all of them. It is the lone survivor of all the Japanese maple trees we have had. It is growing well and gets a little bit taller every year. It is my favourite tree in our backyard. The photo shows the beautiful dark red/maroon colour of the leaves of the tree. I chose to have the photo fill the frame in order so that the tree is the main focus of the photo. My photo is a simplified photo with one focal point, that being the tree.
