Natural Splendour of the Arrow Lakes

Another Look at the Nearby Slocan Lake

The sun shone brightly. No fog obstructed the view so my wife and I decided to travel again to the Summit and Slocan Lakes, which are part of the West Kootenays where we live. Our spontaneous decision did not disappoint us. What a change in the landscape we noticed within such a short time! As photographers we have often experienced how a scene can alter its appearance within just few minutes. When a cloud blocks the sun, it even happens at the blink of the eye. Enjoy.

    Yes, beautiful. Some great curves and arcs in your photos, I like the suggestion of an hourglass in the second shot, but these are all great vistas.

    These lakes are a dream, one more beautiful than the other. The view down on Slocan Lake is especially impressive with the clouds reflecting blurred in the water. This adds some mystery to the photos.

    The reflection in the second photo is pleasing, but I’m especially taken with the first. The clouds floating between the pines and the mountain peaks are delightful.

    Breathtaking place. Has weather started to change to give a hint of oncoming autumn season?

    Tranquil is the word that strikes me. Hope we can keep them this way.
