The mugo that sits on the edge of a cliff - part 6

Then, a few days later what was originally the trunk was bent severely. One can see how it split. The main branches were wired. Now was the time to stop this and let the tree decide about it's styling. I took into account that the severly bent top might die and had an alternative plan. Anyway, it was clear that the next step could only be in spring or summer of 2007. In the meanwhile the mugo looks like a mess. Such is bonsai life.
