A Visit with our Canada Geese in December

Even though we had our first snow our friends, the Canada Geese, decided to stay a little longer to enjoy the green grass still growing abundantly on our golf course at the lakeshore. I captured them in the air, on the ground and on the water. Calm conditions and brilliant sunshine made our walk down to the Fauquier boat dock a memorable event. Enjoy!

Introducing the Alberta Rose

The Alberta rose is the provincial emblem of the eastern neighbour of BC. It is such a beautiful flower that I am inclined to call it the queen of the wild roses. It thrives in cold climates, but it does not disdain to grow in milder regions such as the area around the Arrow Lake. I took the photos in a single session late in the evening as the sun was setting. One landscape shot with a rosebush in the foreground shows the Needles ferry as it was crossing the lake. Enjoy.

Canada Geese at our Lake Shore

Every year the Canada Geese are staying longer, before they are turning south towards warmer climates. Here in Fauquier they like to gather at the local golf course, where they have easy access to large areas of high quality grass. While one goose is indistinguishable from another to the human eye, the geese definitely know the difference. What appears to us like a giant gaggle of over a hundred geese, could easily be a dozen different flocks, which is only noticeable, when they are  being alarmed and take off, one flock at a time. Today’s post will highlight the Canada geese at the Arrow Lake in Fauquier. Enjoy the sights!

The head goose puts the flock on high alert at a distance of about 50 m.

At distance of about 30 m from me the geese are taking off.

Most are now air-borne and are heading towards the safety of the lake.

Safe! Humans, try to catch us in the icy waters, if you can.

Lakeshore Impressions on a Grey November Day

About 60 km south of Nakusp on Highway 6 lies the small community of Fauquier, where the free ferry takes you across the Lower Arrow Lake. Here at one of the most beautiful locations in the West Kootenays my wife and I have been living and raising our family since 1976. Today I take you down for a stroll along the lakeshore not far away from the popular 9-hole golf course and boat dock.

Enjoy the tour!
