Shooting in a Rainforest can be fun, rewarding even, but there are some parts of Guyana that are not quite rainforest, where the variety of trees forms a tangle of verdant threads in a patchwork green tapestry, and it’s hard to take a photograph to show the scale or the beauty… this is where I like to think is the type of area most Guyanese generally call “the bush”; although to most of us coastland dwellers, the “bush is anywhere beyond the towns that have visible treelines blocking your view 🙂
This one was taken just past 58 Mile, Mabura area. Even in this quick snap you can see a fair variety in the trees, of note is the scale of the vegetation to the vehicle disappearing up the road.

“The Bush”, said with contempt by some, but with awe by anyone who matters 🙂
Nice photo. My maternal granddaddy who unfortunately died before l had sense enough to remembered him was a surveyor in those parts… Older folks who lives in Mabura probably know him or of him. It would be great to hear stories about his life while working there.. 🙂
Next time.. Invite me to the bush
You live in “the bush” – just kidding
I think you arrived here after I came back from “the bush” 🙂
Can we see the color version of this. The Black and white is fantastic but being a person who admires and love to see the seasonal changes in the trees of North America I would love to see the color. I know the area is vast but you make them come to life in your pictures.
