Pitch Fall - Weekend Reflections

Clytie and I spotted this glistening pitch fall as we walked along the road near The Abandoned.  This looks  like a lovely fall of golden honey. 

In reality, tree pitch will stick to everything and it doesn't come off!  If you DO get pitch on your hands, rubbing alcohol will remove it--as does peanut butter!


NOTE: If you intend to visit The Abandoned, be sure to get permission from the owners first. If you do not have permission, you may be arrested and prosecuted for trespassing.

I find time also removes pitch quite well - and your hands stay fragrant! Tee hee! Not so much to do when it's in your hair ... I can attest to that! Snip, snip.

What a gorgeous reflections shot, sissie. Your pitch shot turned out sooooo much better than mine! Love ya!

I never knew how lovely pitch could look. Never new about peanut butter for its removal.

Engaging shot and interesting concept for a blog.

Pitch must be what I know as 'sap'. This is a gorgeous image of it. I laughted at the equation between alcohol and peanut butter. I love this 'abandoned'. Keep wandering ...

Sucré et translucide. Très beau !

Pitch is a new term for me. It is probably very pretty to insects as well, I imagine?

ahhh, and word verification is cringe, as in you cringe when you get to close to this stuff!

Those drops are so lovely... Their color is quite unsual too... This pic speak to my soul : thanks for the sharing...

Looks like liquid gold! I've never heard this word before, either. I love the light's reflection in the beautiful drops. What a gorgeous capture of cascading drops!
