Natural Splendour of the Arrow Lakes

Wednesday’s Photos

A Stormy Day at the Beach

The snow has finally come, and it looks like it will stay. We are looking forward to a White Christmas. It is also time to take out our cross-country skis. Only a few weeks ago, under the influence of the Hawaiian express (a river of warm air flowing in from the Pacific), we enjoyed balmy weather that felt more like spring than the coming of winter. There were a few stormy days when the lake was so rough that nobody dared to go out fishing. Here is a collection of five photos reflecting the dramatic effect the waves created against the beautiful backdrop of our mountainous region. Enjoy.

    Your first picture, with the cloudy sky and all those rocks, reminds me so much of Lake Wakatipu on New Zealand’s South Island.

    Peter, thank you for sharing your Arrow Lakes and the beauty. Definitely, refreshing to see the photos and the stormy weather. Blessings!

    The roots of the tree stumps in the first photo look as if they all point to the same direction. The waves are rather impressive for a lake. And in the last one the colour of the grass in the foreground and the dramatic sky are quite a successful composition.
    Our snow will melt. We are supposed to get temperatures up to 12+ during the next two weeks.

    Wonderful photos which capture the coming of the colder months, Peter. I particularly enjoyed the contrasting colours in the last photo – just beautiful.

    Each of your photos seems to present a different ‘face’ of your lake. While there are similarities among them, each shows a distinct view, and they all are quite pleasant. They certainly make a nice set of images.

    I woke up to our first snowfall today. Nothing much in terms of accumulation—just a couple of inches. But enough to turn everything into a winter wonderland!

      Will it stay for a White Christmas?

        We already can see the grass showing through, and it’s supposed to rain tonight. But we could always get more snow between now and the 25th!

    Beautiful landscape. It is such a beautiful place. True, it doesn’t look like winter from these pictures.

    I’m still amazed by the nature up there.
    I really like the photos with the dead trees by the lake with the waves.

      Indeed these tree stumps have a beauty of their own. Thank you, Rabirius!

    The many moods of your lake! It does look somewhat foreboding in these pictures, as opposed to the many sunny and bright pictures you have shared on other occasions..
