Liquidambar autumn leaves

We have a huge deciduous tree in our front garden which puts on a great show in autumn. I had been wrongly calling it a maple until tonight (oops!), when a quick bit of confirmational Googling and this easy tree identification key identified it as a Liquidambar (American Sweetgum). Not that it diminishes the appearance of the leaves in the thin autumn sunlight.
