Above Dunvegan

Dunvegan Lookout.jpg

Dunvegan Historic Site is nestled in the valley, on the banks of the Peace River.  Carry on northwards and there is a spectacular view of the river downstream.  Here is Carolyn’s go at the scene.  The mix of soft wet in wet and scruffy, dirty, strong foreground was great fun to create.

Early Bouquet

 

When the Pleasant View Painters came to tea, Carolyn had an early spring bouquet for Judy’s table.  These are tulips and saskatoon blossoms.  The arrangement was strongly back lit by the sunshine through the window so the colours were strong and pure.Tulips and Saskatoons.jpg

Spring Thaw

Spring has sprung early in the Peace Country, although we expect a little snow before its time to plant anything!  The thaw always brings something interesting.  A small creek loaded with ice and snow melted from the bottom as the water began to erode the ice.  Below is a tree trunk with layers of ice beginning to drip.

Here’s the bigger picture.  You can see how the layers dangle quite high.  The actual creek bottom is about four feet below.
