Comparing Seasons: The Same, but Different

I have a favorite country drive in the Madawaska Highlands that I like to do at least once a year, especially during the fall.

I’ve blogged about it before, and I always take lots of photos,  many of which end up as watercolor paintings.

This year was a bit different.

Due to a ski injury, I was out for the rest of the season, which gave me the opportunity to see my favorite sights during the winter, for a change.

I find it kinda neat to compare the seasons….

    Very cool!

  2. Friar Says:

    Yeah…I thought so. Hard to get the same exact photo from memory…but I find they’re “close enough”.

  3. Friar's Mom Says:

    I enjoyed your seasonal comparisons.

    I love wooden barns. They bring me back to my childhood when they dotted the countryside along with log barns. It’s roof is sagging like an olde nag;s back. I wonder home many more years until it collapses under the weight of winter snow.

    What a difference a season makes. Both beautiful in their own way. Thank you for sharing.

    @Friar’s Mom
    The fall photo of the barn is from a few years ago. From the winter photo, I wonder if the roof is slightly caving in? Could be the beginning of the end…

  6. Friar Says:


    I like both seasons…but doesn’t the winter look so DRAB compared to the fall?

  7. Ron O'Shea Says:

    I’ve noticed throughout the Ottawa valley that settlers dwellings and out buildings are often clustered.Was this done with a purpose in mind and was there a name given to this type of configuration?
