Natural Splendour of the Arrow Lake

Wednesday’s Photos

Bayview Revisited in May

A couple of weeks ago I visited this wonderful place south of Nakusp, looking for the first signs of spring. On a recent  shopping trip to Nakusp I suddenly felt the urge to revisit it. Was I ever in for a big surprise! The sudden change from the winter’s greyness and the feeble stirring of nature waking up to the lush and intense green and the Canada geese walking in large numbers at the beach was indeed an overwhelming experience. I hope you like the photos as much as I enjoyed taking them. Enjoy.

    What an amazing change! Your pictures are gorgeous, Peter – I actually kind of expect to see a bear taking a walk along the shore. 😉

      It seems nature had to wait so long for spring to arrive that it is now playing catch-up. Thank you, Sarah, for your compliment!

      Thank you, Brigit! Most tourists bypass our beautiful area in their haste to drive to the coast.

        It is the same here. Everybody wants to go to the beach and get sand in their clothes and hair and everywhere. Actually, a lake is often much better for bathing, though colder maybe.

      Thanks! But don’t forget every country has its own kind of beauty. Your photos show that India is a country filled with natural and cultural splendour.

    a beautiful landscape, dear Peter. It reminds me a bit of Greece, where we have the sea and hills, too. Here everything is so flat that I can see on Tuesday who’s coming on Saturday, hehe. Have a nice day, kind regards Mitza

      We used to love on the Prairies, where you could see for miles and miles wheat fields or prairie grass. Sunrise and sunset were spectacular. Greetings from summer like BC! Peter

    It’s great to see how the summer goes at your place, Peter.. But, I still see snow at the top of the mountain. Is it there for the whole year?

    Beautiful scenery that you did a great job of capturing, Peter. The lake looks so inviting. The scenery reminds me of Alaska. So refreshing to enjoy the great outdoors, in your back yard. Thank you for sharing, Peter. 😋

        Alaska is always beautiful. We are enjoying 24 hour daylight, beautiful flowers, gardening, hiking, fishing, camping and the opportunity to enjoy the great outdoors without snow.

    Always amazed by what nature has to offer in your neck of the woods. I hope we (humans) can keep it that way.
