Seen here is the famous Japanese Maple (Acer palmatum) at the Portland Japanese Garden in Portland, Oregon.

Situated within Washington Park, the 5.5 acre Japanese Garden is composed of five distinct garden styles: flat garden, strolling pond garden, tea garden, natural garden and the sand and stone garden.

Designed by Professor Takuma Tono, the garden first opened to the public in 1967 and is widely regarded as one of the best Japanese Gardens outside of Japan.

For those unfamiliar, Tom Anderson, the co-founder of MySpace, has built a huge online following for his amazing travel photography. You can find many more of his incredible travel photos on Google+
