improvement of Japanese maple #14

As some are not aware bonsai only takes place seriously for six months in my climate. This is from March to October. During the rest of the time trees are in winter storage and most are frozen stiff. This is the time for musing, for thinking abut the future, for writing articles and storing photographs.

I was looking at this Japanese maple, Acer palmatum. In spring of the year it already looked quite good, as seen on the first image. Then lots of things happened to this tree during the vegetation period. Now it looks like on the second image. During the coming season in 2014 I plan to achieve what's on the virtual. I would be quite happy if that happened.
