Natural Splendour of the Arrow Lakes

Wednesday’s Photos

First Sunny Weekend in 2020

On the first Sunday in February, my wife and I decided to take advantage of the first sunshiny weekend of the year. The road down to our favourite campsite was so buried in deep snow that we had to park our car on the main road. Fortunately, the partially melted snow cover had frozen so hard that we could easily walk down to the beach without any trouble. The sun felt warm in spite of the subzero temperature. It was an invigorating hike, and the photos, which I took home and I have chosen for today’s post,  were an additional bonus. Enjoy.

  1. The landscape is beautiful, of course; the combination of water and sky is very pleasing. Still, my favorite photo is the one showing the cones and branches. The play of light on the cones and the presence of old needles both help to make it an appealing shot.

  2. I did enjoy these, very much! In the third shot, you superimposed that dead limb very cleverly, I blinked at my first glance, because it seemed like a second reflection of the hillside behind it, that’s neat.

      1. Ja, es hat zwar in der Nacht von Montag auf Dienstag sehr beängstigend gerappelt, dafür ist aber dann eben doch alles heile geblieben. Darüber bin ich sehr froh! Auf meiner Fahrt heute ins Tal sah ich allerdings einiges an Windbruch. Es scheint, dass die Bäume hier sehr gesund sind!

  3. Ah, your wonderful arrow lake … The cones are an eye catcher … but the last photo made me look several times. To me it looked as if there were mountains hanging in the air, but in the end I could see that it was dead wood. You got me there … again … 😉
