Natural Splendour of the Arrow Lakes

Wednesday’s Photos

The Ice has been broken.

On April 3, we walked down to the local golf course, where all the snow had melted, and the first golfers had ventured out to play. Our purpose was to catch a few Canada Geese that might be grazing on the grass. But unfortunately, they had found greener pastures elsewhere. So we moved on to Heart Creek at the end of the golf course. There I took a few shots with long and short exposures to demonstrate the difference between images of ‘flowing and frozen’ water. Enjoy!

  1. I’m glad you are enjoying the arrival of spring, thank you for sharing your pretty photos. Flowing water holds so much fascination, but I have never figured out how to change the setting of my camera to create different effects. I need to start practicing!

    1. You should first check Tanja to see if your camera has aperture and shutter speed priority settings. Then experiment with these settings. It’s fun, and you will get dramatic effects.

      1. Thank you for the suggestions, Peter. Not being very technical, I have been avoiding having to deal with those setting, but I would really like to learn and understand them. And the good news–with digital cameras, I won’t have to waste oodles of printed photos trying to figure out which setting works and which doesn’t!

  2. The sight of the water and rocks is pleasing, but I’d love to be able to hear the water’s sound, too. There’s very little that’s more relaxing than the sound of a well-behaved stream!

  3. It’s always good to see, hear, and enjoy the movement of water after winter yields to spring. Around here I have to make the most of it during spring before the brooks dry up for summer. Not much snow melt this year so that will be a short season.

      1. I envy that. Most years our streams turn into brooks of rocks until hurricane season starts. We are not in the usual areas for hurricanes but occasionally one drifts in our direction.
