Scenic winter pictures require proper preparation especially in such cold winter season as northern New Brunswick. The daytime temperatures stay around -15 to -20C and if you add windchill factor being outside is a challenge. Before you plan a road trip research the location and plan what you want to see, when and what will be your route. Check the weather and make sure it is acceptable. It is important to have gloves with a good grip that would allow you to take photos without taking them off. Some of the bulky winter gloves are just too thick to feel shutter button or to change settings.
