Another Ruiter Valley Sunday

Despite being stuck for an hour in a non-moving traffic jam on the Eastern Townships autoroute...we finally made it to the idyll of the Ruiter Valley, truly the best-kept secret in Quebec. The snow was waist deep in the fields, much deeper on the forest slopes. Worth every minute of delay.


  1. I miss the Eastern Townships but I sure don't miss that Autoroute.

  2. i prefer it here on the black background to when i saw it on flickr: it's a really lovely shot.

  3. What in the world is the Ruiter Valley Sunday? Rather interesting anyway....

  4. Man, you must have been goolging your name!
    The Ruiter Valley is a land trust in the country, east of Montreal. Completely untouched snowshoe and x-country area that very few people even know exists.

  5. David..I like the black background too, but I'm too lazy to do that whole bighugelabs thing every time. Oh....OK....


About Me

My photo
A blog mostly about my photography, my etsy shop, travel, and other assorted addictions and predilections. I've been passionate about photography for just about as long as I can remember, right from that very first 1960s Kodak Brownie around my wrist at Upper Canada Village... A great deal of my adult life has been spent travelling the world for extended periods, always with cameras in tow. My photographic interests run the gamut from intimate portraits to landscapes to ephemera to street life. Although firmly entrenched in the digital age, I have a weakness for film and for old cameras.
