Treetops, photographed during a holiday in the South of France in 2010.
I visited there "La Bambouserie", a botanic garden in the Cevennes, South of France,
It has a forest of giant bamboo and a Japanese-inspired garden, based on the principles of Feng Shui.
Below some images of the garden. You can find it here: http://www.bambouseraie.com/en
In the shop I discovered the inspiring book "Écorces" (Bark) by Cédric Pollet.
"This work is the culmination of ten years of photography, in nearly twenty-five destinations, tracking down the most fascinating bark on the globe. From his numerous botanical expeditions, Cédric Pollet brings back unique shots where graphics and colors intermingle without limit".
Below some images from the book.
