So THAT's what they're supposed to look like!  They brought Scot's pines here to Canada, but the trees really don't like it and are basically useless from a forestry perspective.  They grow twisted, malformed, etc.

Two more from Cathedral Grove, both bracketed (HDR) images.

That's because they're designed for photography, not forestry.   ;D

Thank you.

Cathedral Grove is quite spectacular. In fact, in my two and a half weeks on Vancouver Island I found very little that wasn't spectacular, from the amazing gardens throughout Victoria, to the beaches on the West coast, to the islands off the East coast. I now understand why Mike doesn't want to m ove to New York City.

Bill,

I'm partial to B&W in general, and I like the 2nd shot better in B&W. But the first one works beautifully in both B&W and in color.

Reminds me of the Madrone or Manzanita trees in California. Nice color.


The tree looks very surreal. Cool shot.

Chris and Doug, thank you for your comments, I hadn't check the forum the last few weeks.

Late, as usual, to the discussion. Here's a landscape with Scots pines.
Really like Chairman Bill's last Scots pine.

For a change of pace, curious to see how this one goes over.

Waiting for the effects of spring (it has come yesterday), the last two april shots of the tortured platanus (planes or sycamores or how they are called in english...) of Bellano, Lake Como.
