The Journey North, Part II

by | Feb 16, 2011 | Stories & Expeditions | 2 comments

As we approached the the colossal structure known as Abbey of Saint-Benoît-du-Lac, near Magog, Quebec, I felt the thrill of excitement that accompanies every photographer upon entering a particularly photogenic location. However, the opposition was clearly exhibited: a stone building, bleak against a gray sky, overlaid with a thick blanket of white snow is not exactly a colorful subject. Hence, I determined to rely heavily on pattern and perspective.

I was grateful for the inclement weather; I knew most folks never saw this place under these conditions, so any attractive extractions would be prized beyond any typical post-card picture.

    Most incredible! I can hardly believe all the pictures are of the same basic structure. It’s amazing what pattern and perspective can do!

    I like the geometric patterns and shapes!
