This multi-hued beauty is from Luis Vallejo's Museo de Bonsai in Alcobendas Spain (near Madrid). It's hard to distinguish individual leaves (I need new glasses!) but they look like they might be Trident maple.
Today we’ve got three magnificent maples, each with leaves ablaze. Even without their fiery leaves all three would be brilliant bonsai. With them, well… you can see for yourself. They’re from Luis Vallejo’s facebook timeline. If you’ve got a moment, there’s plenty more where these came from.

Fiery Japanese maple leaves. Nice nebari too
You're probably a little jaded by now with all the color, but if you can forget the two above for a moment, this one is no slouch
Looks like a root-over-rock (partial root-over-rock?), where the tree is fused to the rock. This is common with Trident maples
