Natural Splendour of the Arrow Lakes

Winter Loosening Its Grip

The pictures I had taken last week clearly show that Old Man Winter is on retreat. I thank him for giving me the opportunity to capture many images of snow covered landscapes, ice sculptures and even of my wife dancing at the lakeshore. But now it is time to bid farewell and allow youthful Spring onto the stage of our four-season countryside. Enjoy.

    Hallo Peter, ja man sieht, dass der Winter bei euch in Kanada schon auf dem Rückzug ist. Herrlich Bilder vom nahenden Frühling hast du uns mitgebracht. Bei uns hat der Winter leider nochmals ein heftiges Zwischenspiel eingelegt und der Frühling macht in dieser Woche nochmals Pause. Herrliche Landschaftsbilder. Liebe Grüße nach Kanada und bleibt alle gesund. Wolfgang

    I do enjoy the sight of snow-covered mountains in the distance, and these are lovely examples. The winter has been lovely, but I’m sure you’re ready for spring.

    The snowclad mountains look so wonderful … from inside a warm house … 😉 … just joking. The small clouds on top of the mountain look like smoke signals. I bet they are saying “spring is coming fast and furious now”.
    Allegedly we are supposed to have our fist night without frost on Sunday and from then on – at least the following week – there will be no night frosts. I might get a chance to dig in the garden and fertilize the roses.
    I remember the Canada geese from Southern Sweden, when we lived there. They used to stay there and in the north of Denmark over winter. I would have expected them to fly further south, maybe some of them did, but our own geese have not migrated anymore for the last many years.

      I hope your weather forecast is correct and you will enjoy frost-free nights, Birgit. The forecasts for our area are highly inaccurate. Der deutsche Spruch passt da gut. Wenn der Hahn kräht auf dem Mist, ändert sich das Wetter oder es bleibt wie es ist.

    Thank you for sharing the beauty of Spring at Arrow Lakes, Peter. I know Biene was happy as she danced on the lakeshore. I am sure she is filled with joy at the new season.

    It is good to see the Canadian Geese, because they will be migrating North! Have a wonderful day!

      Too bad that you have to wait so long for them to arrive.

        Yes! One of the radio stations here used to have a contest for the first goose spotted in Fairbanks. We look forward to seeing all the migrating birds return.

  8. Fresh and crisp images of the mountains, waiting for the spring to set in, with it’s beauty. I loved the little video, the gurgling sound of the water. As always thank you Peter for sharing your natural splendor.

    Lovely photos! And yes, bring on Spring! Even with the pollen, it’s a welcome relief from Winter.

    Enjoyed both landscapes very much. We are more closed in where I live so those wide vistas are always welcome. The video sounded like a crowd marveling at the water’s motion. I wouldn’t have minded a few more seconds. 🙂 WInter was good this year but farewell and welcome Spring!

    I remember snow on Easter Sunday in New York City in 1970 or ’71, so it seems you could well still get a blast of winter up north.
