By now, most trees have dropped their colorful autumn foliage, but few have done it as beautifully as this 1,400-year-old Gingko tree in China’s Gu Guanyin Buddhist Temple. Believed to have been planted during the Tang Dynasty (618-907), this tree is now big enough to rule the fall with a deluge of brilliant gold.
Show-offs can be a drag, but this magnificent tree is a shining exception. Let’s hope it tries to top itself next year!
