Natural Splendour of the Arrow Lakes

Wednesday’s Photos

Occasionally I will post a video highlighting the natural splendour of the Arrow Lake region in the West Kootenays, BC, Canada. Technically, a video consists of thousands of individual images, which when strung together create the illusion of motion. The original one hour long video recording was reduced to just over a minute. It creates an impressive video effect. In my video editing program I accelerated the slowly moving clouds by a factor of 50 and 75. Because no frames have been lost in the process, the video file still kept a size of over 40 MB. The Fauquier-Needles ferry takes  five minutes to cross the lake, while on this accelerated video it takes only a few seconds. Enjoy.

    Das wirkt als wenn ich auf dem Rücken auf einem Schiff/Fähre liege. Eine echte Pause im Täglichen. Herzliche Grüsse Ruth

      Indeed the ferry gives us a sense of how time has been compressed. Thanks for watching, Robert!

      We had another mild and sunny day. So the snow is on the retreat, but there is still too much left. All the best wishes from Canada. Mitza!

      Beautiful countryside and photography somehow work together. The more you take pictures the more you see things you did not see before. Thanks for the compliment, GP!

    Great job, Peter! I like the way the ice floats by and the clouds swirl around the mountains. It looks cold, but beautiful!
