Natural Splendour of the Arrow Lakes

Wednesday’s Photos

Snow-capped Mountains and Not Much Snow Elsewhere

Another first in more than forty years: After a good dump of snow just in time for Christmas, we experienced nothing but mild weather in our Arrow Lakes valley, which made the snow quickly disappear on our highways and along the shoreline of our beloved lake. Then rain started to fall in the first week of January and more rain is in the forecast. This is highly unusual for the Interior of BC. We did not let the fog deter us from going for our daily walks. I tried to capture as much light and colour as possible under the overcast sky. Enjoy.

    Nebel sorgt für etwas mystische Stimmung, mag ich sehr, aber auch die Gipfel im Hintergrund sind ziemlich imponierend.

      Die beiden Bilder sind fast zur gleichen Zeit aufgenommen worden. Wenn es nebelig und dunkel ist, sucht man immer nach ein wenig Licht. Es freut mich, dass dir das Nebelbild gefallen hat, Birgit.

    In the third photo, in the patch of fog/cloud on the left, it looks as though you caught some iridescence. The pink and green are most obvious, at least on my screen. It reminds me of the fogbows I’ve seen. I really like the next-to-last photo. It’s quite dramatic.

      The dramatic fog photo was taken within the same short period when I discovered a sliver of blue sky above the mountains in the brilliant sunshine. Thank for your words of appreciation, Linda!

    Amazing! How in the world did you find this place when you were looking for a place in Canada?

      That is a long story. In short, it started with a job offer as teacher/pricipal of the tiny school here in Fauquier many many years ago, Amy.

    What a beautiful area, and love these shots with the clouds swirling around. And bright red holly leaves?! I’ve never seen that, but perhaps it’s “grape holly”?

    Certainly, unusual to hear about the vanishing snow. The foggy landscape picture is awesome.

    I love mountain tops hidden by fog. Often looks like they have a halo. I was completely obsessed with foggy hills & mountains in Scotland. Always wanted to climb up and stand in the fog.

      And when light attempts to penetrate the fog and creates that special kind of glow in the clouds, I am amazed by the beauty it creates.
