Pictures of the day

Wind power

December 31st, 2018 — The wind storm that hit Vancouver on December 20th did much worse damage on Salt Spring Island. Thousands of trees were knocked over including this one on Langs Road, a short stretch of pavement at the north end of St. Mary Lake, where more than 30 trees like it fell across power lines. I’ve been photographing root balls for more than 15 years and this is the largest I’ve come across. From the lowest point to the tip it’s three times my height at least. Considering the number of trees that fell it’s surprising more damage to homes didn’t occur but the number of near misses is staggering.

Jericho Beach Pier

December 20th, 2018 — The pier next to the Jericho Sailing Center being under water because of a king tide and high winds was not enough to dissuade two men crab fishing from the end of the pier. It was only reluctantly they removed themselves after warnings from city crews just before the maximum high tide.
