Beach Hedge

Like my recent posts of an arbutus tree and rose hips, this is from a walk at the end of the afternoon when the light was really poor. I am pretty sure that the people that live on the other side of the street see to it that the hedge is trimmed frequently as it would easily block their view if left untamed.

The hedge is along Beach Drive near where it joins with King George Terrace. McNeill Bay is in the background. This is the area of the Songhees village of Chikawich, now represented only by a very large archaeological site beneath the street, lawns and houses in the area. It was sad to see the body of a harbour seal rolling back and forth at the edge of the waves just beneath this location.

Here is a map of this corner of McNeill Bay, you can see this very hedge between the beach and Beach Drive.

EDIT: As you can see in the comments below Juanita was interested in seeing the colour version of this photograph. So here is one, colours slightly tweaked to get the most out of a pretty drab photo. I did not try too hard the first time around, pretty much went straight to B&W. I am a bit surprised at how much colour I could pull out of it.
