Salt Spring Vistas – Part 3

Trees. Leaves. Forests that you can just barely see for the trees, and car hoods that look like forests. Yes, there’s something for most folks on Salt Spring.

If it’s gonna peel so thoroughly, why does it have that other bark to start with?

Among other things, a reminder that there are many kinds of red.

A forest you can almost dive into.

    Arbutus is not the only tree with this approach to growth in diameter. That being said, I do not know if it holds advantages in dome circumstances over the more prevalent cracked bark approach.

    Attractive photos of an attractive place.

      Ralph – They should consider switching to skin, which seems to stretch easily with my growth in diameter.

    You have an excellent “eye”. You see what many of us do not. Thank you.

  3. The visuals are amazing but that last photo is head-spinning and goes straight to the ears.

    • Isabel Gibson says:

      Laurna – Weird, eh? I love playing with reflections in cars, but do have to be careful about taking photos of cars that don’t belong to me.

  4. Jim Taylor says:

    Thank you for the arbutus trees. I find them fascinating.

      Jim T – That’s your birthday gift, Jim. You had mentioned missing the arbutus trees from a previous collection.
