PICTURES MADE BY MY STUDENT ED OF MY LARCH XL AT THE NOELANDERS BONSAI TROPHY 2013

SHORT FILM ON YOU TUBE OF MY LARCH IN THE PHOTOSTUDIO OF W.EVENEPOEL AT THE NOELANDERS2013 HERE!!!

Hi everybody,
I just got out off my bed! And here are some pictures that my friend Ed made early in the morning when I was preparing XL for the show.
After just a few hours sleep Ed arrived at 5 in the morning to help me load XL into my car. Than after a two and a half hour drive we arrived in Heusden- Solden in Belgium. Than Ed and me had to carry XL on this home made stretcher over a long and slippery parking than up some steep stars and than finally trough a long entrance hall to get into the exhibition hall! The things we have to do for this hobby!  Wink

 Below: Finally, XL is there and I am still happy here!

Below: XL in place and ready! It is funny and strange to see how different and open he looks in most  pictures!

Below: Some famous colleges and judges heading my way to say hallo, do you recognize them? This is a hour before the doors were opened for the public and they were taking advantage of this and made many pictures! A few minutes later we all were asked to leave the exhibition area so that they and the other judges could judge the trees in private.

Below: A other picture made by Ed in the photo studio. See how much fuller XL looks with proper lightning! I hope it will look just as good in the up coming commemorative book of this event!

So very sad that I had to leave Xl behind in the show! But I am very happy that my good friend Teunis Jan Klein will take him home for me this evening, so that I can pic him up at his place later this week when I am hopefully feeling a bit better than now! And although things wend so wrong for me later that day, I am still glad and proud that I was able to show XL for the very first time at this prestigious event and to meet up with all my Bonsai friends from around the world!

Cheers,

Hans van Meer.
