What site would be complete without a Juniper to look at.

Here's one - Root over rock 'style'

nice one for sure it has potential. it is well on its way. i would like to see it thinned out a little more to reveal the branch structure and less foliage on the left hand side. :D

Nahh... keep the left hand side just the way it is so you have more time to post! Just kidding :lol:
I like to see the branch structure too and would prefer to see it less evenly balanced. Perhaps a jin on the LHS if the branches are mature enough.

Hi Jon,

Nice tree. I am guessing that the rock is Australian too, sort of creamy-white in colour.

Best regards,

V.

Well I did a little refining on this one today. I am still wanting the roots to thicken a bit more and cling to the rock before I attempt to do much in the styling department.
