Canada Geese in Distress

Last Sunday we woke up from the howling of an Arctic blast of cold air, which had brought down the temperature to -6 C. But there was no cloud in the sky and the sun was shining brightly. So my wife and I decided to venture outside for our walk along the lakeshore at the boat dock. The stiff wind blowing from the north whipped up the lake surface and produced giant white caps. We felt like retreating back to our cozy home. But when we saw Canada geese trying to stay warm by sticking their heads into their feathers, we had to take a few photos to document their discomfort and distress. Add to this scene the lack of food which normally is available from the grass on the local golf course, you get a picture of how these poor creatures have to suffer. Let’s hope for the timely arrival of spring!

The Wolf Moon

29

Last Friday the first full moon in 2020 occurred. The Full Moon in January is the wolf moon named after howling wolves, which may stem from the Anglo-Saxon lunar calendar. Other names: Moon After Yule, Old Moon, Ice Moon, and Snow Moon. I shot the video a couple of years ago and reprocessed with the iMovie editor. Enjoy.

Happy New Year!

May 2020 bring to all people on Earth a healthy portion of peace, good health and happiness! I also would like to apologize to my dear blogging friends who felt a bit neglected by the mere sprinkle of a few likes during the Christmas season.

Today at the beginning of a new year, I thought it would be meaningful and enjoyable to look back and provide a visual review of the photographic highlights of 2019. The video shows some of my best photos of the four seasons at the Arrow Lakes, BC, Canada. While some may enjoy living in areas of eternal spring and summer, I would miss the beauty that fall and winter offer to us living in the northern climes. Enjoy.

 

Peace on Earth

A YouTube video posted by my blogging friend GP Cox touched my heart to the core. It made me break my Christmas pause I had announced earlier. It is my hope that if you agree with the message of peace you will also repost the video and thus help to spread its powerful message.

Sparkling Hill

South of Vernon in the beautiful Okanagan Valley a two-hour drive from the Arrow Lakes is a world-class health spa. There I took my wife at the end of November as a belated birthday gift. You can google the place and get acquainted with the amazing facilities provided for people looking for a peaceful and soothing place to feel well again. What impressed me, even more, was the magnificent scenery surrounding the building high on a hill. The last clip on the video shows a panoramic shot from our room window. Enjoy.

The Blue Heron – The Graceful Visitor of the Arrow Lakes

The blue heron like the majestic eagle and the swift osprey has made a come-back after driven almost to extinction in the Arrow Lakes region. Until the use of DDT and pesticides had been outlawed, their population had been dwindling to the point of no return. Today’s post is dedicated to this graceful fish hunter along our shores typically found stalking through reeds and flooded grasses. Its voice is not pretty, but its gait and posture impress with their elegance and gracefulness. The blue heron is generally a wary and skittish bird that flies away at the slightest hint of danger. This time it allowed me to take pictures from a mere 10 m (about 30 ft). The short video clip shows the blue heron in flight. Enjoy.
