A few scenes from the Lake Cowichan area

The photo above was taken from the campground in Honeymoon Bay as is the next one.

The next photographs come from Youbou. I had a walk on the old mill site. Except for a bit of scrapmetal there was no garbage, but if you want to see ugly by all means check it out. Of course views from there are, like everywhere along that lake, beautiful.

The next picture, if you look close, has an underwater tree stump. All I can think is that the water level before the installation of the weir was drastically different.

One of the interesting land marks in the town of Lake Cowichan is the pedestrian bridge that connects the Kinsmen Park to the main drag. It shows (early) recycling at its best.

I wonder what holds the ceramic glued on and how much surface preparation was needed to keep it from coming unstuck?



About Joseph de Lange

Before retirement worked in art galleries, a photo studio, offices, and the trades. Don't travel much anymore but still photograph. For the past 5 years 95% of my photography is done with the phone. My prediction for big cameras: DSLRs and their beautiful lenses and even the smaller mirrorless cameras will be mostly a historical footnote in the not too distant future.

    Breathtaking lake! The second photo with the reflection is absolutely stunning. Mystical, beautiful – just wow! Thanks for sharing 🙂

    • That second photograph wasn’t even going to make it in since it has not much to do with anything in this post. The photo only made it in because I liked it too much not to use it. I am glad you like it. Thanks Wolke.

  2. One of my favorite places in the world, I know it well. Great shot, Joseph, I really enjoyed this series!!

      Thanks for saying that, Mr Toad. By the way talking Lake Cowichan, I enjoyed your write up on the cow eatery. It is my place of choice when in LC, for good food and friendly service, good one!
