Natural Splendour of the Arrow Lake

Nature’s Inspiring Wooden Sculptures

On a recent canoe ride going south from Taite Creek towards Octopus Creek, my wife and I spotted some amazing structures along the shoreline of the Southern Arrow Lake. These gigantic sculptures designed by Nature in pleasing forms and shapes of purest abstraction are a marvel to look at and enticed me to capture them  with my Canon Powershot camera. Here are a few examples from our theme based trip. Enjoy.

    The last pic is very nice!
    I would have walked around the tree and made at least 100 pictures, haha.

        I shoot about 20, but select only a few. I think that most photographers handle their massive collection in a process of weeding out the ‘bad’ shots.

        I usually shoot more. Well, not of the exactly same motiv. For myself I hope to replace quality by quantity. 😀 But seriously, ina way that works. It wants a lot of weeding, though. But that’s the advantage of digital photography.
        As to replacing quality by quantity: I read once that if 2 million chimpazees keep hacking at 2 million typewriters for 2 million years, there will be a Shakespeare Sonnet among the products, as all statistically possible variations will have been generated. I have no idea, though, if that is correct. But it sounds good. As I teacher, I used to tell that to verbose students, with the remark that they were neither chimpanzees nor had 2 million years to produce something of good quality. 😉

    Nature, the artist, has never been outdone by humans, in my humble opinion.

    Good that you were in a canoe, so Biene couldn’t take them all home … 😉

    There is something almost nightmarish about them—can you imagine running into them at dusk when they’d look like multiple arms reaching out to grab you?
