Crossing the Lake on the Needles-Fauquier Ferry
The Needles ferry is part of the provincial highway system and therefore using it is free of charge. The ferry leaves each side of the lake every 30 minutes from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. After that the ferry is on call during the night. Last week I had to do some shopping in the nearby village of Edgewood. Since it was a brilliant and almost cloudless day, I took my camera with me and captured the following images. As you can see, we are still in the grip of winter. Enjoy!
While waiting for the ferry, I captured the brilliant sunshine upon the lake.

More Winter Landscapes
Once you have truly found your focus for beautiful spots around you, rain or shine, you find good places to photograph almost everywhere. I believe that before this winter comes to an end (at the Arrow Lakes winter follows very well the seasons posted on the calendar), I will find a few more pictures to create another post or two. I hope you will continue to enjoy viewing the images. By the way, I do a bit of post-processing with Affinity Photo, a powerful editing tool available at a reasonable cost.

You can also view my photo stream at flickr.com. Photos are taken mostly from the Arrow Lakes area. Simply search for Peter Klopp under people.
To gauge a little more accurately the scores for the pictures for last week’s photos, I used a mathematical approach with the following formula. First, second and third choice was given 5 points, 3 points and 1 point respectively. There were more than 20 participants for last week’s evaluation, which yielded the following results.
- #1 – 15 points Fungus Covered Branches
- #2 – 30 points Berries Ready for the Picking in Winter
- #3 – 44 points Cattails above a Frozen Pond – First Place
- #4 – 33 points Thriving Ground Fungus
- #5 – 27 points Seed Pods over the Arrow Lake
You are invited to evaluate the photos again. Simply write down 3 numbers indicating your preference, like 4-1-3 for example. Have fun!
