Natural Splendour of the Arrow Lake

Flaming Beauty of a Campfire

The sun has set behind the mountains across the lake. Jupiter is the first object in the darkening southern sky. A magical stillness like a silky blanket is spreading over the Arrow Lake valley. This is the moment when my wife and I like to gather around the campfire near the beach and marvel at the sight of the flames shooting skyward with their fiery tongues. Later, when the fire has consumed most of the twigs and branches, we marvel at the multicoloured spectacle of the flickering dance performed by the burning logs.The photos can only give a glimpse  of the flaming beauty, which words can hardly describe. Enjoy.

Huckleberry Picking Time

Last Sunday my wife and I drove to our huckleberry spot, which is known for its lavishly abundant crops. This year we had a particularly good growing season. A warm and sunny spring brought out their flowers to be promptly pollinated. Then cool and rainy weather set in to make the berries grow to almost the size of the commercial blueberries. Sunday had been our third and last day of picking. Together we gathered more than 10 pounds of top quality huckleberries, which when frozen will last us throughout the winter. The pretty wildflower greeted us when we entered our favourite picking area. Enjoy.

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
