Old Wood and Yellow

Fire Hydrant 3

Fire Hydrant #3

A lone hydrant sits on the edge of an empty field in Quebec, Canada. Last of the hydrant photos. Are you glad? Aperture ƒ/8 Camera Canon EOS 40D Focal length 18mm ISO 100 Shutter speed 1/160s

Fire Hydrant 1

Fire Hydrant #1

So I went to Canada and took photos of fire hydrants, or fire plugs as they’re apparently known as in the US. First of three photos taken in Quebec. I love the white fencing behind. Houses near where we stayed in Mont-Sainte-Anne were all pretty and different. Beautiful part of the country. Aperture ƒ/7.1 Camera […]

Take off from Quebec Airport

Take off from Quebec Airport

Quebec Airport has all you might need: free wifi, free power at some seats and even a children’s toy area for the kids to play in! Nice sunset too! Aperture ƒ/5.6 Camera Canon EOS 40D Focal length 125mm ISO 100 Shutter speed 1/60s

Bird’s eye view of Montmorency Falls

A whale of a time in Quebec

A whale of a time in Quebec

A street in Quebec is filled with drawings and messages hanging down from wires above our heads. Made me think of the “Fail Whale” when I saw this one. Sad. Camera Canon EOS 40D Focal length 200mm ISO 800 Shutter speed 1/200s

A Vendre

Firewood for sale on the roadside near where we stayed in Quebec.

Cross in the Roof

Cross in the Roof

Another (and final) shot of the roof in the Sanctuaire de Sainte-Anne-de-Beaupré in Quebec, Canada. I will post more from this church but this is the final shot of the main roof. Love the intricate design. Aperture ƒ/8 Camera Canon EOS 40D Focal length 10mm ISO 100 Shutter speed 2.5s

Chemin des chutes

Chemin des chutes

A waterfall near where I’m staying in Quebec. To get to here you need to descend about 100m of steep steps but there are frequent observation platforms to observe the waterfall. On the way back up, those platforms were a welcome break from the hard slog of climbing. My legs were like jelly by the […]
