Natural Splendour of the Arrow Lake

Wednesday’s Photos

Bending, but not Breaking

It is good to have a focus when you go out into nature for a photo session. One way to sharpen your focus is to have a theme. With this in mind my wife and I went to the same trail leading down to the Taite Creek Campsite last weekend. One of the great laws of survival, not just for plants and animals, but also for us human beings, is to be able to bend, to be flexible, but NOT to break and succumb to the adversities of life. Here are the photos dwelling on this theme. Enjoy.

    The pictures are beautiful but they still remind me of the cold. I just got in from walking the dog and cleaning off the car and it is 15 F outside. Perhaps you could post a summer picture? 🙂

      How about some pretty ice flowers on the windshield? Perhaps I can pull out a pretty summer flower out of my archives. Thanks for the encouragement!

      I will post a spring picture tomorrow. I hope it will bring you some comfort, Charles.

    Absolutely beautiful even in winter. Looks comforting, almost as a blanket covering the branches to get through cold months

    Stunning photos, as usual Peter. And these ones are more like the place you used to have during this time. The snow is there 🙂

    That’s a wonderful method you’ve described here, Peter. It makes a lot of sense to go phototouring with a theme in mind instead of just hoping to find something worthwhile. Will try this soon when it gets warmer. 😉

      It really helps you focus and guess what, Sarah, it makes finding really good shots easier. Thank you for the nice comment!
