The Saturday Pic

Today’s pic’ is about what we have lost to remind us that we must preserve the tattered remnants of our once magnificent forests that survive, I assess about 4.8% of original south west Western  Australian forest cover remains. I have chosen a picture of diversity rather than a more obvious big trees pic’. Shown in this image are examples of most of the higher slope karri belt forest trees, including a banksia in the foreground. Lower down a slope there would be delights like bullitch and river banksia. Although the trees are fairly small they are diverse, without the monotony of “regenerated” forest, which has the visual excitement of Regency wallpaper

Now get ye to the Alexander Library at 3.00pm this afternoon

Made with Linhof STv, Voigtlander Apo-Lanthar lens and Kodak EPN. Image post scan processed in GIMP

  1. Love this post! Thank you.
    In Sweden we have the same problem. Our politicians, since many decades, thinks that it is good for the forests with clean cutting…..
    Please join us on “Tree Tuesday”. Just publish a post/photograph about trees and tag it “Tree Tuesday” so it will show in the Reader.
