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.

    Crikey, never seen it like that before. Last time I was there it was almost completely frozen over. From the top of the falls all you could see was the waterfall disappearing into a hole in the snow. People were walking around, skiing and doing other madness on the water below the falls.

    The scale in the lower right and the haze glow around the rocks really work.
