Sunrise at Forillon National Park

On the way back from Newfoundland, we detoured through the Gaspe Peninsula of Quebec because I wanted a chance for better light to shoot the spectacular shoreline at Cap Bon Ami in Forillon National Park. The weather cooperated and the predawn glow lit up the wet foreground rocks beautifully. The combination of layered rocks, water and cliffs makes this a magical location for landscape photography.

    This is too cool. I love the foreground, and I bet this is a heck of a place to shoot. Where are you off to after the fall color Meet me in Oklahoma in November for Prairie Dogs and Bison!

  2. What an amazing shot! The rocks look alive!

    Ethan, Great shot, I was there earlier this week, thanks for the heads up about the observation tower at Cape Bon Ami, I saved my energy to walk to Cape Gaspe.

  4. Excellent shot, photography talking. I think you're doing an important job through the blog, showing your wonderful art. I think we can't ignore the way like you attach the pictures either. 23jj
