Photographer's Note

I took this picture at the Montreal Botanical Gardens. At one far corner of the Gardens, there was a cabin which sold maple taffy on snow. Maple taffy is maple syrup but is much more thicker in consistency. The vendor scoops up the mixture in a ladle and gently pours a long strip of it on snow. The snow is packed in rectangular containers and they are placed on tables about waist level. After a minute or two, the mixture hardens even more on the snow. You use a stick about the size of two ice-cream sticks and roll it until it forms into a lollipop.
It's really sweet but good.

Check out the workshop for another view of the taffy.
