If you’ve ever wondered why busloads of tourists from Western Canada arrive in Eastern Canada every fall … well, here’s why.
The East has something the West will never have: vibrant fall colours that make anyone from 3 to 103 go WOW!
I was back in New Brunswick in October 2018 and snapped photos, lots of them, of Mother Nature strutting her stuff. Here are two dozen or so.

Spectacular. I sure do miss all the colors. WOW! Great job.
We are blessed to have such beauty in our little corner of the world. Thanks for sharing.
Lovely, thanks for sharing.
You are one good photographer. Loved them, especially the sun on the Islands! Spectacular!
Niin kaunista !!!
Kiitos Maarit … mutta onko se sama Suomessa? En tieda. Byron
Very nice Byron, thanks for sharing.
So beautiful; stunningly spectacular.
Quebec too. No wonder Quebec is known as “LA BELLE PROVINCE.”
Always glorious, especially in fall. Fantastic work Byron.
For those of us that know/love the area — it never gets old!!!
Thanks for sharing.
Just gorgeous. You need to see Nova Scotia too. Cabot Trail is Magnificent … as is all of Nova Scotia.
Thanks for sharing. The pictures are gorgeous.

I’ve read several stories from this blog and see the broad array of people you interact with within the process as a writer (almost like how a hair dresser or therapist relates to a variety of different people) and have a question:
I was wondering what book(s) you could reccomend to ‘think like a journalist’ ‘think clearer while writing’ etc. ?
I also think a YouTube channel would be cool (provided the people you talk to would agree to be on camera-if not you could still discuss stories and ideas from time to time independently or even have guests in like a podcast style if not live on the street with them like what Joe Rogan does on his podcasts).
CG, I can’t think of any books offhand — but there are textbooks used in broadcast and print journalism classes that deal with writing styles, etc.
The BBC and the CBC have very good style guides. They help point reporters in the right direction … keep things simple and easy to understand. One sentence, one thought … and so on.
Good writing is often code for rewriting. Write and edit until you’re happy with it, then edit some more.
Home sweet home on the north shore of NB! Miss it all the time.
