I live on the edge of the Norfolk Broads National Park. Nice if you like boats, fishing and GREAT if you are a twitcher. Not so cool if, like me, you love mountains. Our flat landscape certainly produces some amazing and inspirational spectacles including some of the largest trees you will see in the UK. Our huge skies are also pretty humbling at times. However for pure bonsai adrenaline I need to be high up in the mountains.

I was recently the privileged guest of a good friend who was gracious enough to share one of his special places with me. I find these places extremely inspirational and refreshing and every time I am lucky enough to visit such places what I see gets imprinted on my consciousness. Creating bonsai requires a broad repertoire of such experiences and a huge library of wild images. Here are a few glimpses of a very inspirational wild place.
