Confederation Bridge in Winter
Cape Jourimain, NB, Canada (2013)
I left mid-morning, driving along the coast in conditions that kept most at home. The temperature hovered around freezing, but the wind chill made it feel much colder. It rained. It snowed. The roads were... passable... mostly. The sky was bored and lifeless, much like my mood. There were better days for photography.
I first went to Cape Tormentine, and left without getting out of the car before returning to fire off a few frames (two of which became the Monochrome series). I didn't want to, but I convinced myself only a complete dumbass would travel that far in bad weather and over bad roads and not take a single, bloody photo. A short while later, I found myself staring at the Confederation Bridge. "You're here, do something!" I told myself. I wandered out through a snow squall, frustrated that the wind, driving directly in from the Strait, quickly covered my lens with snow and ice. It took some time to find an angle that kept my lens clean. I fired off a few frames to justify my time before retreating to the warmth of my car. I headed home, unsure of what I had but (having finally shook off - or froze off - the cobwebs) hoping the overcast skies, which matched the tones of the coastal ice, would create a monochromatic canvas for my subjects.
