Natural Splendour of the Arrow Lakes

Wednesday’s Photos

Of Driftwood, Roots and Landscape Impressions

Last week I indulged in capturing a hover-fly feasting on the pollen of a daisy. On that same canoe trip, I could not resist taking photos of a driftwood sculpture and a beautifully shaped root formation laid bare by the constantly rising and falling lake level. Also the first rose hips have made their appearance, a sure sign that the fall season is upon us. Enjoy.

The sculpture would make a scary ghost on Halloween Night.
This was once a mighty tree before the flooding of the lake more than 50 yers ago.
Even on a dreary day the landscape exudes tranquillity and peacefulness.
Nothing here to disturb the peace.
The rose hips of the Alberta wild rose have made their first appearance.

    1. Our lake is a little off the beaten track. Even in the summer, tourists aim to spend their time in the neighbouring Okanagon valley. Crowdy beaches and campgrounds are also a common sight during July and August. In October, my wife and I practically have the lake to ourselves.


  1. this lake region really is beautiful and tranquil looking. and you seem to have a real knack for finding interesting driftwood, this one looks like a happy creature frolicking and rocking back on its heels.
