Bridge Over Calm Waters
At this time of the year when everyone is busy hustling and bustling to and fro trying to get everything done before the big day I try to take some time out to get out and enjoy the peace and quiet of nature, sometimes its just a snow shoe walk on a trail not far from my home or a visit to the edge of Okanagan lake, remarkably the parks and trails are usually devoid of people. The photograph posted, made with my 4 x 5 view camera and a 120mm lens, is from Noyse lake on the Kludahk trail back in October of this year, I enjoyed a fine day of hiking with family members with brilliant blue skies and the lingering warmth of a summer sun. There is a mood of tranquility and peacefulness that I tried to capture in the photographs I made of the jewel like lake on that day and that I can later reflect upon.
