Natural Splendour of the Arrow Lakes

Wednesday’s Photos

Arrow Lakes Winter Scenery

When the winter days appear to be dreary and the lack of sunshine is getting you down, you must get out of the house and make good use of a rare sunshiny day. And even if the sun never manages to penetrate the gloomy cloud cover in the valley, open your eyes and you will find beauty everywhere to capture  with your camera. I am sure it will give you a big lift and pull you out of the winter blues. Today I present five images to you. I would like to find out which ones my readers like best. Although always welcome and appreciated, no comments are necessary. I numbered the photos, so it would be easy to give a quick personal assessment. Just use three numbers in the order of your preference. Have fun!

    All your photos are very beautiful and help to get rid off the winter blues, dear Peter, but I would prefer the first one. It’s a very nice composition. Have a nice day, kind regards from stormy and very rainy Hamburg, Mitza 😦

      Sometimes we need to be reminded of the brilliant, cheerful, uplifting days of the past to blow away the blues of the present. Thank you, Jodi, for understanding the true purpose of my photos!

    Hi Peter!
    Definitiv 1, wenn auch die anderen Bilder sehr schön sind und mir gefallen. 1 würde ich mir an die Wand hängen, weil ich schwarz/weiß so sehr mag bei Fotos. Freue mich auf weitere Fotos von Dir.
    Happy New Year Ruth

    Hallo! Die Fotos sind alle wunderschön – ich mag die Wolkenstimmung und die Berge……”Twilight” – wenn ich mich für eines entscheiden müsste. Herzliche Neujahrs/Dreikönigsgrüße aus Wien

      Es sieht so weit aus, als ob wir keinen klaren Gewinner hier bekommen. Twilight is auch mein Lieblingsbild. Ebenfalls herzliche Neujahrs/Dreikönigsgrüße aus dem kleinen Fauquier, BC, Canada!
