Silhouette, with dropping sun

Every time I go to Oyster Bay, I end up taking a photo (or three) of this pair of trees. Most get deleted; there are only so many almost identical copies worth keeping.

This time, the late afternoon sun through the leaves almost blinded me. So I took the umpteenth photo, leaning out of the open car door.

8:04 PM. View from the OBSP parking lot.

The yellow shrubs at the edge of the meadow are the horribly invasive Scotch broom, that is gradually colonizing any dryish fields on Vancouver Island. Worrisome.


  1. Broom is such a problem, but I don't see any way to get rid of it. You don't notice it at a glance except when it is covered with those lovely yellow blooms. At least with blackberries you can eat the fruit. - Margy

    1. I loved broom when I was a kid. That was before I learned how it wiped out everything in its path. There are signs here on this meadow, not to remove any plant, since it's a protected area, but I'm seriously tempted to carry my pruning shears and haul out a few of those brooms when no-one is watching.

Also, I have word verification on, because I found out that not only do I get spam without it, but it gets passed on to anyone commenting in that thread. Not cool!
