Natural Splendour of the Arrow Lakes

Wednesday’s Photos

Nature’s Amazing Art Work

Last week we looked at some wintry photos revealing the beauty of our area in the West Kootenays of British Columbia, Canada. Today our focus will be on the amazing shapes and forms that Mother Nature can produce in the winter. Again 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! Enjoy!

The Most Liked Photo in Last Week’s Post

There were fifteen people of my followers at WordPress and FaceBook, who sent in their evaluation of last week’s photos. Most stated that they found all pictures equally beautiful, but if pressed they would choose …. It turned out that picture #4 (Fauquier Twilight Hour) had a slight edge over the other four. Here is the winning photo:

    2 5 4
    2 makes me want to walk it, ski it, roll around in it
    5 reminds me of a graceful swan
    4 is just plain fun
    1 is pretty cool but 3 scares me. It looks so intimidating. A group of big angry men.

      I love your creative descriptions of the photos. On the picture that scared so much, I have to make a small confession. Before publishing the icicles I turned the image upside-down. Thank you, my dear blogging friend!

    I like 3, 4 and 5 best, but can not come up with an order. All three of them look kind of surreal.

    All of them are amazing, Peter. But the one that attracts me the most is Number 2. When I saw the picture, I feel like getting reminder of how small we are as humans in this large universe.
