Arbutus - by Karen Rivers, ecstaticist remix
I was perusing Karen's photostream earlier today and saw a photo I just loved. I asked if I could post-process it to bring out the elements I liked, and she agreed.
This is rain flowing down the side of an arbutus tree limb. The arbutus is a very beautiful species endemic to western north america, specifically the Cascadia regions. It is an evergreen, and it sheds its bark in beautiful Autumn colors.
