Winter in New Liskeard, Ontario

It has indeed been a while since I last posted an image on here. It is winter now, and we just returned from Northern Ontario where the landscape is vastly different from Windsor. Since I did not get a chance to go out and shoot any snow scenes, I decided to go through some of my old Black & White negatives from years gone by and do a scan or two. This image was scanned from a 6 x 7 cm negative and I hope to actually make a darkroom print of it before too long. This scene may as well have been taken a week ago, because not much has changed. It was shot from the bridge that crosses the Wabi River in New Liskeard, Ontario. This is a very old building, and now houses a Doctor's Clinic.....can you imagine the heating bills when it hits -35 to -40 C. and stays there for days on end? The expense of upkeep for these stately old homes in the North must be mind boggling for sure.....Hope you like it.
