Photographed at Ashikaga Flower Park (足利フラワーパーク), Ashikaga city, Tochigi Prefecture. This park is well known for having a variety of wisteria trees. The tree in this entry is the biggest among them and it is still growing, branching, and expanding its mass enough to occupy 1000m2!!!
We went there for the Christmas illumination and the tree was decorated with "Y"ellow LED lights. I don't want to know how many LED light bulbs were required to cover the upper part of the tree.
I used Nikon F801S (old film camera) with Sigma 15mm Diagonal Fisheye (first image) and Nikkor 20mm F2.8D (second one).
If you are curious to see this tree during daytime, take a look at this video taken in May, 2010. In the YouTube video, this tree appears at 1:00 min mark.
This is an Outdoor Wednesday, Watery Wednesday (second photo) and ABC Wednesday entry.Y is for yellow.
