Natural Splendour of the Arrow Lakes

Wednesday’s Photos

February Impressions

There is normally not much sunshine in February in our neck of the woods. When there is, one needs to go out to soak up enough of the sun’s invigorating energy to carry us through the next gray and depressing period. On those bright occasions, I always carry my camera ready to capture the beauty of the winter landscape. Enjoy.

    1. As much as we like the snow, there should be a limit to how much a region should get. I’d rather post tree stump and driftwood sculptures. Thank you for your kind comment, Robert!

  1. The first photo is so fine. We flatlanders always love a good mountain range, and this one’s so nicely decorated. The snow sculptures reminded me of the end of winter in Iowa, when dirty snow was the order of the day, and a inch of fresh snow could spiff up the landscape a good bit.

  2. You really have winter … we had a bit of snow away from the coasts, not where we live.

    I do adore the hip!

    I saw two playing puppies or bear cubs in the first snow sculpture and a head in the second (did you help a bit … 😉 )

    Have a nice day!

    1. These natural snow sculptures are everywhere. One just needs to point the camera with the right perspective. I solemnly declare that these scuptures have not been tampered with. Have a great day, Birgit!

  3. Wenigstens bei dir scheint doch alles im Lot zu sein! Heute hat es hier zwar auch wieder geschneit, aber schon jetzt weiß man, dass dies nicht zu einer Haufenbildung führen wird.
    Danke Peter, für diese winterliche Augenweide.
    Liebe Grüße

      1. I couldn’t help noticing the similarity between German Lenz and English Lent, which comes as we’re getting close to spring. When I looked up the etymology of the two words, sure enough, both come from the same root as long, because this is the time of year when the days lengthen as we move out of winter.

  4. The first picture really conveys the beautiful landscape you have around. Living in a place where sun rules almost throughout the year, it is difficult to understand the grey you have to experience. Great captures

    1. Cornelia, like with everything there is sometimes too much of a good thing. We are beginning to tire of the white stuff. But we shoul not complain. We are getting more sunshine and the days are getting longer. Best wishes! Peter
