    Went to New Brunswick (in Canada - it's a Maritime province) for the holidays. The weather was mostly disappointing, and the landscape wasn't as interesting as I had remembered it to be in the winter, so I had to try pretty hard for some decent images. Flickr compression was nice to provide some weird tonal transitions - the only colour that should be there is the blue tint from split-toning the B&W conversions. Anyway here's what I came up with:

    1. an abandoned farmhouse

    2. view from the same house

    3. pasture

    4. same pasture - wind constantly blowing across the fields removes the snow from the center, and it drifts up along fences and tree lines.

    5. more drifts

    7. view of 'Skiddatle Ridge' - way back, during the american civil war, draft dodgers came to parts of NB from New England and were dubbed 'skiddatlers'.

    8. farmland

    9. for the most part, I got around on snowshoes haha.

    Several are a little dark, but I LOVE #5...the patterns/lighting of the snow, and the composition, make for a cool-spooky shot.

    Where were you in New Brunswick? Is that the St. John River in the background of some shots?

    I like several of these but I agree that they're a tad dark. Not much; just a hair. These make me glad I live in the sunbelt.
