Natural Splendour of the Arrow Lakes

Wednesday’s Photos

More Winter Landscapes

Once you have truly found your focus for beautiful spots around you, rain or shine, you find good places to photograph almost everywhere. I believe that before this winter comes  to an end (at the Arrow Lakes winter follows very well the seasons posted on the calendar), I will find a few more pictures to create another post or two. I hope you will continue to enjoy viewing the images. By the way, I do a bit of post-processing with Affinity Photo, a powerful editing tool available at a reasonable cost.


#1 View from the Nakusp Promenade

Dragon Teeth

#2 Last Winter’s Icy Dragon Teeth

Glistening Stones

#3 Evening Light at the Fauquier Boat Dock

Ice Snow Water

#4 Log Booms Encased in Ice



#5 Sunset at Fauquier, BC, Canada

You can also view my photo stream at Photos are taken mostly from the Arrow Lakes area. Simply search for Peter Klopp under people.

To gauge a little more accurately the scores for the pictures for last week’s photos, I used a mathematical approach with the following formula. First, second and third choice was given 5 points, 3 points and 1 point respectively. There were more than 20 participants for last week’s evaluation, which yielded the following results.

  • #1 – 15 points Fungus Covered Branches
  • #2 – 30 points Berries Ready for the Picking in Winter
  • #3 – 44 points Cattails above a Frozen Pond – First Place
  • #4 – 33 points Thriving Ground Fungus
  • #5 – 27 points Seed Pods over the Arrow Lake

You are invited to evaluate the photos again. Simply write down 3 numbers indicating your preference, like 4-1-3 for example. Have fun!

    I would say the 2nd one is pretty good. I don’t do post-processing at all – nature should be enjoyed in its true form 🙂

      Thank you, Alok! I appreciate your comment on post-processing. Sometimes the eyes see things differently especially in difficult light situations. Then and only then do I give the image a little tweak to make look as I did see it.

    This time, as simple as 1, 2, 3 for me.
    But all of these are excellent. I love that dragon’s teeth shot.
    The first second I saw the frozen log boom, it registered as a line of railroad cars, iced over on a bridge.

    Great pictures. My favorite is #4 and also #1.
    I don’t do post processing of pictures, except for auto color correction.

    2,4,1. Is this like fantasy football ? If we pick the winner several weeks in a row we win a pt of Canadian gold?

    Again very difficult to decide. The dragon‘s teeth have to come first. What a great shot! And then #3 and #1

    The Dragon Teeth are a nice capture! As our the others, but I found that one to be a unique composition.

    It’s hard to say. Perhaps 4-2-3-5-1, but even 1 is very good.

      I take it as a compliment when you struggle with deciding on the best picture in the set of five, Bun. Thank you! By the way the evaluation game ended as of last week.

        Oh dear, I’m behind the times as usual! All of the photographs really were very good, though.
