Cretan Maple

Photo of the Cretan Maple, Acer sempervirens, on Gigilos mountain peak on Lefka Ori mt, Crete, Greece, taken in winter, when it dropps all of its leaves. This deciduous, rather small sized tree, grows in mountain areas (over 200 m of altitude). In autumn its leaves have an impressive red or yellow color.
