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.

Look up at the roof

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.

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.

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 time I reached the top.

St Patrick and the Volkswagen

St Patrick and the Volkswagen

A Volkswagen Beetle parked across the road from St. Patrick’s Catholic Church on the Lower Glanmire Road in Cork. The church was built in 1840. The car, not so old.

Shot on the recent photowalk in the city.
