Nature – The Greatest Artist
Let your eyes roam over a beautiful landscape and you will discover nature’s artwork in a stunning mountain scenery, in a cascading waterfall, in the undulating waves of the ocean, or in the small world of flowers and insects visiting them. Today, my focus is on the driftwood sculptures shaped by the natural forces like wind, sun and frost. These photos were all taken on a recent excursion to ‘our’ island. Enjoy.
What We Saw from our Canoe last Sunday
The sun was shining brightly, the temperature was a comfortable 21 degrees, and the wind had calmed to a pleasant breeze. Off we went to our beloved spot at the Arrow Lake and launched our canoe driven by a quiet electric motor in search for some great nature photography. We were lucky. As we travelled along the shoreline, we spotted a merganser pair that allowed us to come close enough to get in a few shots. 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.
