Natural Splendour of the Arrow Lakes

Wednesday’s Photos

Wooden and Stone Creatures

and a Landscape

Before several snowfalls blanketed the entire Arrow Lakes area and most of BC, my wife and I went out to hunt for some unusual art forms that the great artist Mother Nature creates for those who keep their eyes open for the wonders all around them. On our walk along the beach, I discovered a buck’s head, a wolf, a dinosaur, a landscape with great contrast between dark and light and a colourful creature turned to a friendly woman’s face. I have to confess that I was using a photo editor to add a little punch to the images in order to make the characters stand out against their background. Enjoy!

    These are terrific, Peter! Nice photos in themselves, and a fun bestiary. The second shot has intriguing lines and swirls, even without the resemblance to a wolf, and the fourth shot, with the dark pines in the foreground and clouds hovering over them, might be a great silkscreen. A very successful hunt!

    I agree with Robert Parker, terrific photos! I especially like the wolf and the stones … you are right, Peter, nature is the greatest artist!

    These are lovely, and confirm what we both know; nature is the finest artist.

    You know, Peter, all the pictures I’ve seen of your Arrow Lake region, you really should have post cards made up of them.

    What an amazing eye you have! Most people would walk by and not see what you saw—myself included.

    Those are all quite good! The second one reminds me of the head of a horse, from the side, as if it were running. Good eye for natural beauty, Peter!

    Fascinating. Perhaps as a typical resident of a hot-weather place, I always find snow-covered landscapes captivating.

      Wear good winter clothes and you can easily tolerate severe winter conditions. But what can you do, when the thermometer reaches 40 degrees or even higher? Thank you for your kind comment, Ankur!
