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! 🙂

Easy way up

Easy way up

The easy way up to the Montmorency Falls is by cable car direct from the visitor center. We took the steps. Legs. Sore. (Great coming down though!)

Sanctuaire de Sainte-Anne-de-Beaupré

Sanctuaire de Sainte-Anne-de-Beaupré

The Saint Anne-de-Beaupré Basilica in Quebec is an imposing but beautiful building. It’s surrounded by flat river side countryside and low lying buildings so it really stands out.

Got lots more photos from inside, hopefully to be posted over the next few days.

Signs of Quebec Industry

Signs of Quebec Industry

On the journey into Quebec City from where we’re staying it’s impossible not to miss the plumes of steam (and smoke?) rising from a number of buildings, seemingly right in the middle of an urban area.

According to our guide the buildings contain a cigarette factory and a paper recycling plant. Up close one of the buildings looked like it was on fire as white steam/smoke escaped from dozens of chimneys on the roof and possibly at the side of the building.

In the foreground are parts of the old City Wall.

Night Over Quebec

Night Over Quebec

Night falls over Quebec as we finish our tour and photowalk around the city. ISO 1600 came in very useful as the sky got darker! Pictured here are a few of the buildings just outside the old city walls. I think the Hilton is the building on the right.

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.

Sunrise, as seen from my home office here in Blarney about 3 weeks ago. The weather was great in September. Much better than it was in August.

Cobh in Black and White

A dump of the b/w images I shot in Cobh over the weekend. It was a strictly “stroll around and do nothing” day (so sorry Conor for not calling in!) as Adam was being minded by my sister.

As I said a few days ago, I shot everything in black and white and I’m pleased with the results. From about the shots of the rope on I used RAW+Jpeg but I still prefer the b/w images.

Hope something here takes your fancy!
