Wooden and Stone Creatures

and a Landscape

Before several snowfalls blanketed the entire Arrow Lakes area and most of BC, my wife and I went out to hunt for some unusual art forms that the great artist Mother Nature creates for those who keep their eyes open for the wonders all around them. On our walk along the beach, I discovered a buck’s head, a wolf, a dinosaur, a landscape with great contrast between dark and light and a colourful creature turned to a friendly woman’s face. I have to confess that I was using a photo editor to add a little punch to the images in order to make the characters stand out against their background. Enjoy!

A Glimpse at Wildlife – Part I

Of all the large mammals the deer population appears to be the most abundant in our area. Hardly a day goes by without encountering one or two deer standing by the roadside. They have become so accustomed to humans that they don’t even bother to retreat into the woods when you point your camera at them. Black bears are next in line. Lately they have become quite a nuisance and have visited our village, especially in the fall, when they create havoc among our fruit trees. They like to come at night and raid our apple, pear and plum trees. The result is often a mess of broken off branches. The photos have been taken over the past three or four years. Enjoy.
