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

 

SHORT FILM ON YOUTUBE OF MY LARCH IN THE PHOTO STUDIO 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. Then after a two and a half hour drive, we arrived in Heusden- Solden in Belgium. Then Ed and I had to carry XL on this homemade stretcher over a long and slippery parking than up some steep stairs and then finally through 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 hello, do you recognize them? This is an hour before the doors were opened to 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: Another 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 pick him up at his place later this week when I am hopefully feeling a bit better than now! And although things went 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.
