Oh my, that’s a lovely spot!
It is, indeed!
Looks very like the trail I was walking today next to the Oconomowoc River….I love the smell of pine needles in the sunshine!
Some of the trees had been ring barked, I know not why, so they were exuding copious amounts of sap.
I had to look that one up – ring barking, or girdling, ushers in the slow death of a tree as it cuts off the return supply of nutrients from the leaves to the roots. I wonder if those trees were diseased?
It might be part of a process of thinning the trees. I’m not sure of the logic behind it…. there may be an ecological purpose, in that the dying tree will be more attractive to insects, and therefore a food source for birds? ….Dunno.
Beautiful! It hasn’t got the usual strip of grey gravel round the water’s edge like most reservoirs.
Excellent photo with impressive fine light, reflections and symmetry
Just lovely Stephen..
