Cowichan River near the Duncan railroad bridge



Every river is gorgeous one way or another. It may be an exciting scene or languid atmosphere, etc. Of all the beautiful rivers the Cowichan River is by far my favourite river. I do not say that it is the most beautiful one way or another, even though this river scores tops in my books, it just happens to be my favourite. I am accustomed to her face and happy with that. This past spring I toyed with the idea of committing a blog post to the total river. Instead I’m opting for particular locations. In this episode the river flows through the native land base in Duncan. Other posts dealing with the river are here and here and here.

An interesting phenomenon in the Cowichan River is the native fishing weir.


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.

    Very nice spot, and I love those house fronts, as you might guess I would. Looks very peaceful.

    • I am sure, ehpem, that these house fronts (actually the backs) never get observed by the majority of Duncanites. This very short stretch of river does not get visited very much at all by anyone.

        I think in traditional times, this face of the building, right on the river, would have been the front, which might be why they have been painted. Kind of nice to have this secret art gallery to surprise the more enterprising walkers.
