In August we spent two weeks touring the Gaspésie and the Côte-Nord regions of Quebec, Canada. We began driving on the south side of the St. Lawrence River because it would be very hard to find reasonably priced accommodation at Tadoussac at the beginning of August if we were to start from north side.
Sunrise at Bic was at least half hour earlier than in Ottawa. Took the shot below at 5:04AM at Les Anses. It was quite windy. I imaged that the blurry pink flowers would be interesting in the foreground when captured using slow shutter speed.
At 5:30AM, I was at the Discovery and Visitor Centre. How could I be more creative? I attached a variable ND filter to an EF24-105mm f/4L lens to capture sunrise beside the ocean. 10-second exposure smooths the ocean surface and makes it look like ice.
The soft golden light in the earlier morning is magical. Bay Ha Ha, a very photogenic place in the park looks fabulous. Hope I doesn’t ruin the beauty to include myself.
Day 3 and day 5: Parc National de la Gaspésie
The size and popularity of the park was under appreciated by us during planning. The camping site we chose is located at the Mont Jacques-Cartier section, 40 minutes drive from the visitor centre on unpaved road. En route to our camping site we hiked the Mont. Ernest-Larforce trail.
We were rewarded by double rainbows after hiking in down pour to reach the summit of Mont. Ernest-Larforce.
The next morning I found a perfect place to fly the drone I borrowed from a friend.
