Natural Splendour of the Arrow Lakes

Wednesday’s Photos

Early Autumnal Impressions

The arrival of fall in the Arrow Lakes region of BC is little behind schedule this year. Yes, the maple and poplar trees show their spectacular colours, but the larches are holding back as if they are not yet ready to face the long winter. Also, we did not have any real night frost yet in our area, which is sometimes – tongue in cheek – referred to as the banana belt of the Kootenays. A good hard frost always sets the spectacular colour wheel of autumn splendour in motion. Here are a few photos giving you a glimpse of fall at the Arrow Lakes. Enjoy.

    What a green in the first picture and what a red in the last one! 🙂

    Wunderbar. Ich bestaune das Grün über dem borkigen Stamm – darin noch einmal die Meise. Ist das dein Hausvogel? 🙂

      Auch die Blätter vom Nussbaum fangen jetzt an sich zu verfärben. Wir haben schon recht früh dieses Jahr die Futterkrippen für unsere gefiederten Freunde aufgehängt. Es macht Spaß, sie beim Füttern zu beobachten. Das ist besser als Fernsehen.

    Beautiful as always. The third picture which shows an expansive view is my favorite. The place is so scenic and beautiful.

    Wundervolle Bilder, lieber Peter. Die Farben im letzten Bild sind einfach toll. Aber auch die “dampfenden Berge”, insbesondere die auf dem dritten Bild, gefallen mir sehr gut.

    Lovely, as always, and that 3rd shot is my favorite, with the clouds hovering down in the valley. I haven’t seen the really flaming red in the maples here, yet, that’s spectacular.

    The colors are late here in New England also. So odd. I especially love the bird photos.

    Beautiful photos! I hope the red mist is red mist and not smoke of a wildfire again! The bird is so cute a Kohlmeise?

      The wildfires no longer pose any danger and are completely out. The chickadee is most likely ‘eine Kohlmeise’.

        I am glad to hear that!
        Chickadee, the dictionary calls it “Schwarzkopfmeise”, I just looked it up. It resembles our Kohlmeise. They are so sweet birds.

    Peter, beautiful photos. Glad your autumn is late, so you will get to ahoy a longer time of fall before the winter comes. Here in Alaska, the river that flows through town has chunks of ice and the snow has been on the ground almost a month. Enjoy the changing season. Trust the forest fires are subsiding. Blessings!

    I’m surprised that you haven’t yet had any night frost. By Canadian standards, that’s a banana belt indeed.

    The chickadee with the green leaves is my favorite photo, although those red leaves are quite something. The yellows and oranges of autumn are lovely, but the red always is special.

    Fantastic photos, Peter! The vibrant maples leaves and the beautiful bird were a particular delight 😊
