These pictures were taken in the middle of winter, and most of the bonsais were in a translucent box with no front to protect them from the weather from the top and on three sides. This accounts for the curious looking backing.
This grouping echoes beautifully the rocky sea shores of the West coast.
Being so dynamic, this one seems to illustrate a Tai Chi move.
This is where I saw for the first time large-size bonsais. The following was at least 5 feet tall.
The photo below gives you an idea of how beautifully displayed they were, at eye level, in a grandiose setting of West coast tall evergreens.
I have seen many bonsai collections, but this was the best one.
