Artist's Description


Sugar shack (French: cabane à sucre) captured close to St. Jovite, Quebec (Canada) in autumn 2013. Camera Nikon D600, 1/30 sec at f/20, ISO-160, focal length 32 mm, lens Nikkor 28-300 mm. RAW file edited in LightRoom.

This kind of small cabin is a semi-commercial establishment, prominent mainly in Eastern Canada, where sap collected from sugar maple trees is boiled into famous Canadian maple syrup. Sugar shacks are a tradition since they were introduced to New France (area colonized by France in North America) in 16th century. Their purpose was the production of warming and delicious syrup for trade or sale, and for personal use during the cold months of Winter. Today most of the old sugar cabins can be found on properties belonging to the first settler families.
