I pulled the car over to get this shot of a promotional set-up for ice cider , i wonder if the cider is actually produced here in the red farm at the rear or is a sale representative of the product anyway i noticed the red of the cart matched the red-roofed buildings at the end of the field ,this is what prompted me to stop nevetheless it came to me then that i was little aware of this new product advertised here on the barrels( cidre de glace in French )and quite new on the market i learned. For my own info and for those of you not familiar to the making of Ice cider here is what i found in Wikipedia about this :
Ice cider or apple ice wine is the cider equivalent of ice wine , a fermented beverage made from the frozen juice of apples.There are two approaches to producing ice cider : cryocentration and cryofermentation .
Cryocentration involves harvesting the fruit late in season and leaving them in fresh storage intil late December when they are pressed and the fresh juice is left to freeze naturally , in January the concentrated juice begins the process of cold fermentation .
Cryoextraction is similar to the traditional method used to produce ice wine : apples are left on the trees at the mercy of the weather until the end of January , they are then picked , the temperature must be around -8c to -15c and then pressed and left to ferment for months .
Interestingly the first claim to commercial ice cider was in Dunham Quebec in 1990 and the first bottles made their appearance in stores in 1996 .

Hmm, sounds like how they make ice wine too!! Interesting story as always Carol.
Lovely view here.. Of course the cider cart is your focal point, but the view into the distance down the row of trees to the red and white farm is really great .. takes ones eye right into the heart of the shot. The barrels and cart as as sharp as can be ..
Nice innovative tricks on the frame too .. just for something a little different today? It looks good.
I hope you have a good weekend Carol. Any big plans?

Waw....cidre glace!
Great details and wonderful shot!

Bonjour Carol,
C'est plutôt la période du vin chaud que du cidre glacé, mais la photo est originale, avec un bon réglage de la lumière qui ne rend pas la neige trop blanche. Les notes rouge du chariot et des toits donnent une note de gaieté.

Bonjour Carol.

Je trouve intéressant ton cadrage, coupé aux bons endroits, avec un bon angle qui laisse à découvert le passage à l'arrière. Le rouge du toît rappelle celui de la charette. Le tout est bien net. :-)

Bonjour Carol

Voisins de galerie ce jour, enchantée.
Les couleurs sont bien contrastées, le cadrage est bien pensé.
Mails il y a un détail, non, deux détails qui me sautent aux yeux et me plaisent par dessus tout :

1 - Pour le mot cidre, les deux premières lettre CI sont sur la même feuille, car il n'y a pas assez de tonneux pour faire la 5ème lettre.
2- encore plus fort ! Pour glace, il n'y a pas le E mais il y a assez de tonneaux.
Et ça c'est EXCELLENT !
ça me rappelle les cours de maths à l'école primaire où il faut coller des lettres ou des chiffres pour suivre une logique.
Mais la logique, on s'en fout ! HAHA, ce qui compte c'est d'avoir compris.
Avec ta composition , on a compris, c'est clair, net et précis.
Très belle photo pleine de spontaneïté.
les tiers et la PDC sont parfaits. Bon et beau travail.
Bon week end

Olá Carol

Bonita composição...o cenário é interessante e as
cores vivas e contrastantes dão um toque muito
especial. Parabéns!

Bonjour Carol

Excellent sharpness with good graphism & a well exposed reading on the snow. The bg vineyards add context & perspective. Bon weekend!

Bonjour Carol.
Une belle image qui pourrait presque se passer de commentaire tellement elle est expressive.
Tout y est, la culture et les barriques présentées dans une bonne composition.

Bonne journée.
