Saturday Snow 7

This is the graveyard of an Acadian settlement from the 1700's. After the expulsion of the Acadians, the early Scottish who settled the area in the 1800's continued to use the site for burials. This stone is from the Scot's time.

 

I just found out this morning (Sunday) that Dan Hicks, whose music I have featured here many times, died 06 February. I truly loved his work and was a huge fan. I remember Blackdog saying that Ingrid was a Dan fan as well. Here is a good scat song I found on YouTube that I had not seen before.

I love how this feels like a snow tunnel- nice use of depth of field!
Mary MacADNski: I will never get these comments responded to. I keep watching Dan and the Hot Licks.. I'm at 3:31 Thank you Ma'am.

Did PEI have Native Indians prior to white folks showing up, Mary?
Mary MacADNski: Yes there were native people before the Acadians.

That sounds very original, Mary
Mary MacADNski: This manufactured stone is from the late 1800's. The Acadians used natural stones more as a marker.

I love it when it's untouched like this
Mary MacADNski: I had the whole place to myself.
SNOWSNOWSNOWSNOWSNOW. If only you could send some of it to us (I know I'm repeating myself!). Look how peaceful this burial site is with the snow to cushion the spirits!
Mary MacADNski: It has been lovely though the weather in this period is crazy. It was -22 this morning and is going to be +8 tomorrow and raining. How crazy is that!

Love the point of view and that is a lot of snow. Great pictures.(a lot of great musicians died this year and we are not even 6 weeks into the new year.
Mary MacADNski: Dan Hicks would have been the most influential to me by a long shot. You can see on top of the grave marker, we got only a couple inches.
Wonderfully captured with this tunnel feel Mary!
Mary MacADNski: Thanks, Richard. Had to use my knees.
Virgin snow...beautiful. A lot of our favourite musicians are popping their clogs lately!
Mary MacADNski: Dan Hicks was the most meaningful to me. e and his bands always had a distinct groove and sound that will never be matched. I have been thinking of himm all day today and yesterday.

My dream of winter - but now I should stay inside and enjoy this view - a great image!
Mary MacADNski: It would be nice to choose when to go out but us workers have to be out on Monday morning.
a really fine snow scene, all the varied shapes
Mary MacADNski: I had to bend my knees here.

Can one play hide and seek in the snow? Or will the tracks give positions away.
Mary MacADNski: I think your tracks would be a dead giveaway.

I love to see the virginal snow before people have walking through it. I try to see the Youtube video once work is finished for the day.
Mary MacADNski: I hope you do listen to some Dan Hicks. I may remember you not liking him, come to think of it.

What an amazing scene, you can almost hear the silence of it all
Mary MacADNski: I feel the silence here too.
A beautiful scene.
Mary MacADNski: Thank you, Chad, one of the cold and dead.
another beautiful view, peeking through the branches, Mary
Mary MacADNski: Down on my knees....
A real tangle - no burials that day!
Mary MacADNski: It has been some time since a burial here.
