L'autre bout du monde.


video

The first white coat covered Montreal today, revealing once again how hard it is for me to say goodbye to fall. Every year, and for as much as possible, I try to extend this magical season until it gets pulverized by the first snow... which was today.
Under an eerily darkened sky, naked and cringing trees are now getting ready to host ice and raven for the next few months to come.

I think my tolerance for long periods of snow is diminishing. A big smile used to appear on my face with every first snow... but not this year.
I just am not ready yet...
But here it comes again so hold on tight, it is going to be a bumpy and very moody ride.

(this is a short film I shot with wife while driving the "wine route" through the eastern townships of Quebec - Fall'08).
the film lost a lot in resolution when uploaded here... I wish I can share the actual video so you can appreciate the beautiful and bright colors along the way.

i totally enjoyed the ride :) felt all the bumps in the road too. cool!

i strained to see the colours but what i could make out of it, it looked gorgeous. in singapore, it either rains or shines. our trees stay green all year round. boring compared to this.

thanks for sharing :)

I do not think that we will have a white Xmas this year in Lebanon. It is sunny (and very polluted) outside, not a cloud in sight.

No one is ready for snow in MTL , it feels like it's winter all year long, so you're not the only one who's not smiling, Pouzy

_z I totally feel the same way! I am soo not ready for Winter. But seems like this year is a mild one due to the Nino effect.

workingmom,
Fall in Canada is really magical. I wouldn't exchange it, but I would share it.
How is fall in Paris?
