Some more images from the last weekend of Winterlude in Confederation Park. That included this display of furs, which I found interesting.
I also wanted to show the individual panels in the wall of ice I've shown previously, showing scenes of Canada's far north.
I like your blog header, very beautiful and colourful! Interesting to know more about fur from Winterlude.ReplyDelete
I assume the fur trappers were First Nations people? The far north seems a beautiful world unto itself.ReplyDelete
Some individual panels look very good.ReplyDelete
The display of furs is really interesting, William !ReplyDelete
And I like your new header photo !
neat reflections too! i love the shot of the lady smiling. ( :ReplyDelete
I'm with Karl. Love reading the display. I could spend a lot of time there. Plus, love the header photo. Tulip time, soon!ReplyDelete
Love those pictures in the wall of ice!ReplyDelete
Happy Friday and have a great weekend!
These panels are interesting....ReplyDelete
Amazing vistas on the panels William, the furs don't seem to be moving along very fast :)ReplyDelete
This panels are interesting.ReplyDelete
You show some very soft tanned furs. "raw" fur is much different as it's very stiff and not very flexible.ReplyDelete
@Kay: they did look of First Nations descent.
@Tomas: thank you!
@Karl: we in southern areas don't really see the fur trade, but at one time it was critical to the country.
@Beth: I did too.
@Janis: soon being a question of time- it could be a bit early, in late April, but no matter what, it's weeks away.
@Tamago: thank you!
@Norma: they are, yes.
@Grace: well, they weren't for sale!
@Sharon: it's an interesting way to display them, putting them in ice.
@Red: I've only seen them along these lines, but I know there's a lot of work that goes into the process.
The panels are quite interesting especially the way they are displayed!ReplyDelete
There's so much beauty in Canada! Good that these photos try to show some of that (for the people who will never get that far north).ReplyDelete
I am sure this is very interesting!ReplyDelete
Fabulous photos! The coats in the first shot would certainly keep them warm. Lovely people and especially enjoyed the lady with the big smile in the last photo.ReplyDelete
neat way to display the photos.ReplyDelete
The first pic just reminded me of Tadoussac...
I would have found that first booth interesting too.ReplyDelete
I have just gone back through your Ottawa posts. Looks like you are have an interesting and maybe fun time there. Thank you for sharing all your sites.
I meant the last 5 Ottawa posts.Delete
@RedPat: they did something similar last year with a Canadian flag encased in ice.ReplyDelete
@Halcyon: many of us will never get up into the Arctic.
@VP: it was!
@Denise: they would have been warm!
@Tex: I certainly liked it.
@Tammie: I assumed so!
Those images look so amazing set in a frame of ice. Those furs look not only thick but quite weighty.ReplyDelete
I like those hooded coats with the fur trim :).ReplyDelete
The panels are interesting. I like the way they are set up.ReplyDelete
I think I would have enjoyed that fireplace.ReplyDelete
Love the photos and your new banner. So pretty.ReplyDelete
I find the northern people interesting , lovely photos and your header is wonderful ! Thanks for sharing , have a good weekend !ReplyDelete
@Gemma: I imagine they would be.ReplyDelete
@Lauren: they're quite distinctive.
@Bill: I did too.
@Revrunner: it was warm.
@Country Gal: thanks!
That is how I prefer seeing the cold, far Northwest. Looking at great photographs.ReplyDelete
A wall of ice? No wonder it's cold! Weather dude said it's coming down from up North.ReplyDelete
Fascinating pictures, but being a native Floridian, I would probably not fare well in the far north.ReplyDelete
A valuable historical memorial and thus a good reminder of what that part of Canada is and was all about.ReplyDelete
Some of those panels look very nice and interesting.ReplyDelete
@Mari: I'd love to see the far north of my country someday. I've been to all of the provinces.ReplyDelete
@Eve: cold is good!
@Lois: I would enjoy it.
@Lowell: thank you!
@Jan: they were.
