Japanalia from Yokohama, Japan

It's first time see for me! I did not know at all how the maple sap is harvested!Maple trees are most pictorial in all seasons and here I like their skeletons contrasting with the white of the snow and the blue of the sky!They might be proud because they are producing something so delightful to the human palate!

@Japanalia: « ... They might be proud
because they are producing
something so delightful
to the human palate!
»

And I can tell you that everything is delightful,
the water, the syrup, the butter and the maple taffy.

Maple Taffy

La tire d'érable se déguste à la cuillère.
Une manière encore plus traditionnelle de goûter la tire d'érable
lors des parties de sucre consiste à verser le sirop épaissi et bouillant
sur de la neige tassée et de le manger à peine figé,
à l'aide d'une spatule de bois appelée palette.


Merci Gabriela.

Michael Skorulski from Cigel, Slovakia

A beautiful image of a very traditional Canadian activity. The contrasts are lovely.

26 Mar 2008 6:44am

@Michael Skorulski: Thank you Michael !

« ...a very traditional Canadian activity... »

I am not very sure about the rest of Canada,
but I can tell you that in Québec
it is probably our way of celebrating spring.

Vikram from Mesa, United States

Excellent! What a great light and so sharp! Is this an HDR or something?

26 Mar 2008 7:09am

@Vikram: Thank you very much Vikram!

« ... HDR... »
Sorry, it is not.
It's a secret but perhaps Photoshop
did a little something with sharpness and pastel tones.
;-)))

What is not a secret
is that the picture was already excellent.
Bravo Gilles Martineau !

Illuci from Hurdegaryp, Netherlands

A "prima vista" je croyais que c'etaient des poubelles, et je me suis interrogé pourquoi tant beaucoup de poubelles étaient nécessaires, (peut-être les Canadiens font plus de pagaille que des autres gens ?) mais le titre a m'a informé. Concluant, une photo très intéressante et très Canadienne!

26 Mar 2008 10:05am

@Illuci: Cette photo illustre une autre époque, les poubelles sont maintenant révolues (les canadiens ne s'en servaient plus!). La modernité a apporté une autre façon de faire, les arbres sont tous raccordés à une tubulure sur laquelle une pompe à suction est actionnée afin d'amener la sève à la bouilloire.

MaryB from Staffordshire, United Kingdom

Ahhh, so that's how it's done. Thank you I've learnt something new today :) . A lovely crisp and informative image,

26 Mar 2008 10:12am

@MaryB: This photo shows a different era, the cans are now phase out. Modernity has brought a different way of doing things, the trees are all connected to a pipe on which a suction pump is operated to bring the sap to the maple sack.

Some great syrup in the making there!

Suzanne Labbé from Granby, Québec, Canada

Gilles, encore une magnifique photo. Tu en fais ta spécialité :o) C'est génial d'avoir déniché une érablière qui récolte l'eau de manière traditionnelle. Bravissimo.

26 Mar 2008 11:20am

@Suzanne Labbé: Merci Suzanne de ton appréciation. Bientôt nous n'aurons plus que de vieilles photos d'érablière tradionnelle.

carmen lapierre from Canada

Quelle belle photo, les couleurs sont magnifiques,
et cela nous fait penser au printemps.
Félicitations.

26 Mar 2008 12:51pm

@carmen lapierre: La réouverture des érablières, c'est l'annonce du printemps, le soleil qui réveille les érables et qui nous stimule aussi.

Merci pour ta visite.

Tracey from Baltimore, United States

Perfection. Lovely winter/spring picture.

26 Mar 2008 1:00pm

@Tracey: When the farmer hangs the sap buckets, the spring is in the scope.

Thanks for your visit.

Steven from Chicagoland, United States

Interesting composition where the grove of trees begins and then the trees being tapped for sap. The tins themselves seem to "make the picture" with their semi-symmetrical placement. And the blue sky in the background highlights the tree forms.

26 Mar 2008 1:40pm

@Steven: Thank you Steven. I'm proud of this picture because this was an older era.

Earnest from Oklahoma, United States

This is an informative entry. I've never seen a photo of more than one maple being tapped. Thanks.

26 Mar 2008 1:45pm

@Earnest: Maybe we won't see more than one maple taps with bucket in the future, easier with piping!

StarCosmosBleu from Bedford.Qc, Canada

C,est le temps de se sucré le bec....un des signe que le printemps est proche...une belle prise..la textures des arbres ressort très bien...belle lumière aussi et de plus voir des chaudières plutôt que des tubes ça c,est de l,originalité

danthro from Suburbia, United States

i really like the sharpness and detail in this shot. i've read about how they get the maple sap or whatever it is from the trees but i don't think i've ever seen it before.

26 Mar 2008 4:42pm

@danthro: It was a very sunny day so I could get a lot of DOF for the details. I'm happy that I could have shown something new to you.

Thank you.

Very nice shot of some good hard working trees.

26 Mar 2008 9:48pm

@Michael Rawluk: Nature is well done, after a while the trees plug the hole and they work on producing leaves.
