A Good Match

At first I thought my painting looked a bit green and maybe a little gloomy.  Then I set it up for a direct comparison… hmm.  Pretty close!

If you look carefully through the raindrops you might be able to see the wedding arch on the grass.  Fake flowers (not melted in the rain) on the steps of a couple of ladders and a plank between them made a simple and, as it turned out, very hardy decoration.  I do hope the wedding was over though!

Scenes From the Mountains

The Pine Pass in British Columbia, Canada, is one gorgeous view after another.  Here are some of the things we saw on our two day excursion.

B.C. is very lush: it rains all the time!  But it pays off in rainbows, cloudscapes, clear water and the sweet scent of spruce in the summer.

Bijoux Falls

One of our favourite destinations in Northern B.C. is Bijoux Falls, near Mackenzie.  It’s a three tier waterfall, at least, but it is a slippery climb through some steep drop offs to get to the upper tiers.  Safest to stay behind the fence… although someone had a sense of humour and a creative brain.  We did visit the upper falls and got wet through for a reward.  It’s hard to complain about leafy water when one enjoys the waterfall mist!

Mackenzie Swallows

DSCF3218DSCF3236 At Morfee Lake in Mackenzie, Northern B.C., the swallows were fascinating.  They were very busy, skimming low over the lake and returning to chatter in the dead tree on a point of land extending far into the lake.  They are very attractive blue and green birds.  Two babies huddled together, desperate for a nap and bothered by the melee of adult family members.
