Stem Wall

 

Tree stems along the edge of a clear-cut on Quadra Island this summer.

This is the second or more likely the third cut of this forest.

    • Hi Andy – I agree. These ones never had the chance to grow to their full size – the forests thin out as the trees get bigger but the loggers can’t wait. Better that they are taking these young trees than the old growth though.

    • Thank you Lynn. These edges are common on parts of Quadra, and I am very attracted by them but find they are really hard to photograph. Driving past them they give a flickering pattern that is very interesting too – I have low-fi video of that which I should post sometime.

      • I can imagine the flickering pattern you’re talking about. The edges do draw the eyes in with such a strong pattern. I bet your eyes take in more than the camera does, and when you use a wide angle lens it’s just not the same. But I do like the photos, so even if it’s not what you’re seeing, the viewer gets something from it! 😉
