The Fundy Trail Parkway

Image
In my previous post, I mentioned how my day trip with my friend Mathieu Chiasson along the Fundy Trail Parkway had been somewhat upstaged by a lone tree that we had visited that same morning and evening. Today, I wanted to share a few of my photographs from our time on the parkway because, don't get me wrong, it was very nice too. That morning, as we were nearing the east entrance to the trail, we saw a coyote looking at us from the side of the road. We pulled over hoping to snap a few pictures, but by the time we'd exited the car, it had vanished without a trace. At the trail's entrance, we were greeted by a gate. It turns out that, despite our detour to see the tree, we had still arrived about an hour before the trail was scheduled to open. In order to kill some time, we made a U-turn and took a stroll down a rocky ATV trail where we saw plenty of birds and a few deer. When the latter saw us, they hopped away flagging their tails,…

The Lone Tree

Last Saturday, my friend Mathieu Chiasson and I headed out for our third photography day trip. This time around, our destination was the Fundy Trail Parkway, where neither of us had been. Although I did take some photographs out on the trail — some of which I will likely share with you in a subsequent post — it's the ones I took prior to and following our drive along the trail that I appreciated the most.  Our first stop of the day was at a lone tree near Sussex, NB. We'd been there last year during our first photography day trip together to Saint John, but since we were in the vicinity again this time, we decided to check it out before heading south on our coastal drive. As we pulled over to the side of the road, we were met with a magical scene: a deer was standing near the tree. I stepped out of the car, grabbed my camera bag from the backseat and attached my telephoto lens to the camera. As I reached the other side of the road, the one nearest t…

A Weekend at the Camp

Why, hello there! I've decided to start a blog to document my photography adventures, but more on my motivation behind that, later in a future post.What I wanted to talk about today was my weekend at my best friend's family's camp. The camp is located in a wooded area, by a brook, not too far from Moncton, NB. A couple of times a year, we'll head out there to shoot the shit, do a bit of hiking and watch some old movies on a small television screen. Inevitably, this leads to us eating junk food and going to bed very late, both of which are a rarity for me.What kind of movies, you might ask? This time around, we watched Lost in Translation, Employee of the Month, Purple Rain, Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure, 100 Girls, Mr. Deeds and One Week.As I almost always do when I leave the house for an extended period of time, I brought along my camera. I recently unloaded my DSLRs in favor of a mirrorless camera, the Nikon Z50 to be exact. The body and the kit lenses are…
