Natural Splendour of the Arrow Lakes

Wednesday’s Photos

A Walk along the Lakeshore of the Lower Arrow Lake

On the second Sunday of Advent brilliant sunshine, so unusual in December, invited my wife and me to drive out to our favourite campsite. In other years, we had to park our car at the junction and walk down over snow and ice to the lake. There was hardly any snow, which allowed me to drive down to the boat ramp. From there we took a leisurely hike to the mouth of the creek. Of course, we had our cameras with us, and here is the result of this glorious Sunday morning. Enjoy.

      As of today the landscape has changed and is covered by a blanket of snow.

    Your photos capture both the beauty and the piercing cold of the ice and snow.

    Well, I had to go back to my high-school Latin to translate that line under your last photo. And Google told me that you were quoting Psalm 18! Thanks for the lesson, Peter, and those beautiful photos!

      I am so glad that you took the time to search and translate this verse from Psalm 18. There are not too many people who would even recognize the Latin language any more. Have a great advent season!

      Ebenfalls eine gesegnete Weihnachtszeit! Nun haben wir Schnee und der Winter steht vor der Tür. It is beginning to feel like Christmas.

      I had placed the camera on a tree stump to get this picture of my wife and me. Thanks for the kind comment, Des!

    You two are looking good! What a fantastic sunny day!

    Your Wednesday photos are always so uplifting with this vast, impressive, beautiful nature that surrounds you.

    I do like them all very much, with maybe a tendency to favour the one through the roots and the one through the needles …

      When I take photos, I always try to find something unusual, a new perspective to an old theme. Thank you very much. Birgit, for your uplifting comment!

    Each drop at the tip of a pine needle is a world unto itself.

      So true, it is very much like with snow flakes. To the casual observer they all look the same.
