The Guide that droved me there decided to turned around because it was too difficult for his lungs. I was left with two kids and proceeded my climb to the highest Peak of the Province.

Of course it wasn't easy for me neither. I'm so stubborn that I just continued my walk.

Lots of heaving breathing!!! and I met my favorite people - QUEBEC!!!!

Those are great shots Charles.

I don't know what to say - well, yes I do, but where do I start?

There is no artist on the planet that could do justice to those pictures.

Absolutely amazing - those bridge supports look like they were photo
shopped in there - the fog, sun, bridge, trees - reflections - truly
amazing. Haunting with the fog lifting - the lighting is fantastic - all
of them - what an eye you have...

Do me a favour? Leave all your photo archives to me in your will. Pick a
charity - I'm going on the hunt for "submit your photos" - sites on the
web. If you won't let us make you rich, - you say no one will pay - a
charity might as well benefit.

I don't think you have a freakin' clue just how great a photographer you
really are. Sigh....if I could only get you to focus on that!!

I agree 100 per cent. This is where you are truly gifted Charles.

I left Fredericton in 1981. I always loved that city - especially in the Fall with the changing colours. The skyline certainly has changed in the last 30 years, but the city has not lost its charm.

I live by the Ottawa River now, but my heart belongs to the Saint John River. In fact, I was born in the city at the junction of the Saint John and Madawaska Rivers.

I hope you will continue to post pictures of beautiful Fredericton so that I may visit once in a while and conjure up fond memories.

Really nice shots Charles.. did you get a new camera?

Anonymous said...

Charles, the first dozen or so shots are incredible! But that is my taste, the reflection shots are also spectacular. I can't believe you do so much with so little. Yet again, more for your upcoming book. Thanks for sharing these wonderfull shots. Tax Payer John

Yup, people keep sayin' it, you need to do a book of your photos. Where are those snobs at Goose Lane Editions??? They should be after you to do a book of your photos. It's a win-win, you would make money and so would they.

Charles LeBlanc said...

Nope!!! I don't have a new camera....

:(

Only three left at Harvey's....

Great Shots Charles, good to see you are back in town!

Anonymous said...

These are absolutely beautiful photos Charles. You are a great photographer of nature at it's best

awareness said...

I LOVE the first shots Charles before we met up for the walk. STUNNING. They look timeless.
The reflection shots are superb too.
These people are right! You have such talent. You have an eye for capturing and framing a shot. Not many people have that.

Looks like something out of a horror movie.

My buddy jokes that if there's mornings like this, having a shotgun nearby is very handy just in case the fog is hiding hordes of zombies.

Nice pics LeBlanc
