Look up at the roof

The ceiling of the Sanctuaire de Sainte-Anne-de-Beaupré in Quebec is quite a sight. In a low light situation you can’t get a more stable support than the floor at your feet, lucky me.

A wide angle lens meant I had to run for cover lest the camera capture me in the image. The 2 second timer was very convenient for this purpose.

Steps to Montmorency Falls

Steps to Montmorency Falls

If you’re adventurous or just have strong legs you can climb the many steps to the top of the hill overlooking the Montmorency Falls.

I climbed the steps with a few of the other Automattic guys and took in the breathtaking view over the St. Lawrence River up to Quebec City. Add to that the thunder of the nearby falls and it was well worth the climb.

Montmorency Falls

Montmorency Falls

You’ll find Montmorency Falls just outside Quebec City in Canada. They’re an imposing sight, visible from the highway and by foot you can almost reach the base of the falls. Bring a coat and protect your camera because you’ll be soaked by spray!

Remember that Balloon Boy story last week? People have been searching for the boy since the story broke. Searching online that is. On that day, my Balloon Boy was the number 1 hit for that phrase in Canada (and elsewhere) and this site served an extra 10,000 or so hits. People are still searching and it’s boosted traffic levels nicely.

Pity it’ll all disappear once the controversy dies down.
