Natural Splendour of the Arrow Lake

Lost Lake Revisited

Lost Lake is half an hour by car away from the Arrow Lake. But as reported before there is a significant difference in altitude of more than a thousand meters. Naturally Nature is a bit behind, but therein lies its real charm. All the flowers, shrubs, berries and greenery come more slowly and also disappear more gradually. Here are a few impressions I gathered with my camera at the end of June. Enjoy.

Of Wild Flowers and a Wild Raspberry

On Monday I challenged myself to find wild flowers and perhaps some ripe berries within an area of just a few square metres. The light in the dense growth was not too harsh in the late afternoon sun. I accidentally deleted a couple of good close-ups, but I was quite satisfied with the four I had selected earlier. Enjoy.

English Bay

A Few Impressions

My wife and I travelled to Vancouver to attend our son’s wedding at the Vancouver Rowing Club. On Sunday after the wedding my wife and I spent some time at the English Bay, where many people were going for a late evening stroll to watch the sunset. Here I posted a few of my impressions of this very popular beach area. Enjoy.

Reflections, Lake Impressions and Wildlife

Today’s focus is on the beauty of the Arrow Lake on, in and near the water. Reflections are forever fascinating, especially when you watch them in a light breeze, which adds motion to the wavy water surface.  While relaxing at the beach on Father’s Day last Sunday, mama merganser with her little brood came by close enough for me to take a picture of the same merganser family, we had observed the week before. I captured the two bears on my camera a couple of years ago also in the spring. It is quite rare to see two different coloured bears together. Enjoy.A-IMG_6352A-IMG_6382A-IMG_6386A-IMG_6393A-bears

What We Saw from our Canoe last Sunday

The sun was shining brightly, the temperature was a comfortable 21 degrees, and the wind had calmed to a pleasant breeze. Off we went to our beloved spot at the Arrow Lake and launched our canoe driven by a quiet electric motor in search for some great nature photography. We were lucky. As we travelled along the shoreline, we spotted a merganser pair that allowed us to come close enough to get in a few shots. Enjoy.

Thimbleberry Plants, Ferns and Wild Raspberry Bushes

The thimbleberry plants with their beautiful white flowers are blooming in great abundance right now at the Arrow Lake. Their fruit is almost inedible, as it has too many seeds and too little flavour. On one of their leaves I captured a fascinating bug taking a nap in the hot afternoon sun. Ferns are everywhere in the woods and their leaves forever impress me with their forms and shapes. In my search for new aspects of nature I also came across a wild raspberry patch, which attracted dozens of bumblebees. Ignoring the more attractive flowers of the ubiquitous thimbleberry, they zeroed in on the humble raspberry flower. They were too quick for me to catch them with my camera. Enjoy.
