Ride in the countryside with Dao Dang (6 pics)

Discussion in 'Landscapes, Architecture, and Cityscapes' started by Frits, Jan 4, 2006.

  1. Today I had the pleasure to meet up with Cafe member Dao Dang, a consumate gentleman.
    The went shooting in the (winter) countryside. Unfortunately a somber day.

    Here is a view of a typical Quebec, Canada village. The omnipresent big church, with the village built around it:


    Winter in Quebec, a random farm:

  3. Great images Frits...love that Quebec countryside...brings back memories of skiing during my university days St. Agathe...and St. Adele...

    thanks for the flashback

  4. Love the cow pic!!! Also like the pic of Dao but what's all that stuff he's wearing? When I last saw him he was in shorts!!! Still loving that 50mm/f1.4 and still watching eBay! :wink:

    Very nice countryside shots Frits and my favorite is the lone old barn.
    Dont let Ray get a hold of that one..LOL
    Excellent clarity in that last one too.
  6. I like the cows and the 2 guys as the restaurant. Nice to see snow. We don't get much in Alabama.

    The Cow Pic is also my favorite. The color effect of the brown cows with the white snow just looks great. Additionally do the cows look very 3D.

  9. Hi, Frits!

    Enjoyed your ride in the country side with Dao Dang. Yes, I could almost feel the cold, but that snow sure is pretty...from a distance! Glad to see you had fun! Thanks for letting us see Dao Dang in action.

    Beautiful countryside...you can keep the snow and cold, but the countryside is picturesque.
  13. Beautiful captures, Frits. I wouldn't mind having that white stuff instead of rain here. These are very good captures of Quebec countryside, a very pretty province.
