Coral Tree - from Abstract Nature Photography series, by award-winning artists Ben and Raisa Gertsberg, aka BRG, who collaborate under the name It's a Beautiful World!
This exotic tropical tree is also known as Erythrina, or flame tree, for its bright and colorful flowers. These trees also grow in abundance in Southern California in gardens and parks. Tree branches can resemble the shapes of sea coral.
But the main attraction with this species are the clustered flowers themselves. They usually have brilliant red color and amazing shape, with interesting radial symmetry and are attractive to hummingbirds.
Enjoy stylized dramatic portrait of this remarkable scarlet bloom framed by the tree trunk and branches, against circular patterns of blue sky.
