The Ice-Free Pond

Last week I showed a lone cattail at a frozen pond. Two days ago, we visited the pond again and found that all the ice had melted with daytime temperatures climbing way above freezing. A pair of mallard ducks had already returned from their winter quarters and settled nicely in their seasonal residence. It is an ideal place for the ducks with plenty of water to frolik in and clumps of tall grasses and reeds to hide from predators. For me, it was hard to get a good view to capture them with my camera. A brief walk across the road is our favourite viewpoint. Dark clouds made the BC Hydro powerline and the lake below look more dramatic. Enjoy.

More Fall Pictures

The fall season is very short in the Arrow Lake region. I collected a few images from past years to post them here with the emphasis on the beauty of the landscape with its autumnal colours. In another week or so winter will announce its presence with frost and snow. Enjoy the beauty of fall while it lasts.
