Natural Splendour of the Arrow Lakes

Wednesday’s Photos

Murmuring Brook

Last week I posted five images that I had taken of ice-free Heart Creek, which I interpreted as a sure sign of spring for our northern latitude. I experimented with long and short exposure times to show the different effects by creating the impression of flowing and ‘frozen’ water. These photos were generally well received by my blogging friends. Linda wrote in her comment that whenever she sees water in motion, she likes to hear the relaxing sound that goes together with a murmuring brook. I felt the same and so I went back to Heart Creek and shot the following video. Enjoy!

  1. I love to see and hear water in movement, I can understand Linda. That is why I make those wave videos at the Kattegat. Every time one goes there, it is different. The brook will be just like that, always depending how much water is flowing down. So good the ice has gone!

  2. That’s wonderful, Peter; it’s the sound of snowmelt, for sure. It reminded me of a couple of lines from a Wendell Berry poem titled “Our Real Work”:

    “The mind that is not baffled is not employed.
    The impeded stream is the one that sings.”
