Embley' is a medium-sized deciduous tree with pinnate leaves composed of up to seventeen lance-shaped, finely pointed leaflets turning bright red and orange in autumn. Flowers are creamy-white; fruits are glossy scarlet. I am always drawn to this small specimen tree in Savill Gardens: this particular day, the light was soft and hazy and the tiny red berries appeared to have a natural vibrant red sheen to them. I like to get underneath the leaf canopy and shoot outwards towards the light and spent a while trying different angles in between waiting for the foliage to settle as it was quite a breezy day.
