[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Here is another photo taken very early in the morning (4h11) at the same time as the sunrise on Rocher Perce, I have just turned my camera 90 degree to point to Ile Bonaventure.
I was impressed that morning of seeing the colors transition the sun was raising left of the photo and the transition was so beautiful.

I'll be busy this weekend, doing my first real wedding photography. It's for a coworker but I feel stress a little bit anyway.

Have a great weekend

you right this is a very impressive sight. Hte color and the light is incredible. Beautiful cloud formation and the color reflecting divided by the silouette of the island looks really great. A wonderful seascape.

Amazing colors, Luc !!!
Very impressive scenery.
Good luck at the weeding, I'm sure everything will be just perfect !

thanks and stay well,

Hi Luc,
What a beautiful sunrise with such soft colors. The shape and position of the clouds is very stunning and creating a beautiful reflection on the water. I really like the way you kept both island and shoreline as a silhoutte.

photo impressionnante, quelles couleurs!!!!
tout simplement epoustouflantes, et j'adore le contraste de ce petit bout d'ile vraiment, vraiment compacte!

i really envy you for those beautiful sunrises.
The colours are superb and the composition is so well done, so natural

Good luck this weekend, and don't worry, it ill be perfect!!


:)) later

Hi Luc,

Great sunrise shot. I always love to see sunrise.
Great colors, sky & clouds. Well done.
Good luck for your first wedding photography. I love to see those photos if you don't mind.

Impressive shot Luc. Lovely deep colours, good POV and nicely presented in the smaller format. Don't stress too muc about the wedding. I did one back in April and the bride and her family were very happy with the results. TFS,
Many thanks for your comment on

Again very nice compo Luc. Compliments Take care

Hi Luc,
A gorgeous sunrise of Ile Bonaventure. Good composition with superb morning colors. Best wishes.

Bonjour Luc, comment va? quel beau coucher de soleil avec de belles couleurs! L'ile Bonaventure est tellement bien photographiee ici. Je n'ai jamais vu ce point de vue auparavant.

Belles silhouettes! Bravo! Yan :)

p.s. Merci beaucoup pour les bons mots "Mountain view from Trail #21".

Ça suggère bien une grosse baleine bleue qui pique un roupillon entre l'eau et l'air...
L'angle et le lointain démontrent bien le gigantisme de ce bout de roc!

and another stunning sunrise Luc, really beautiful. I would've sampled the pink from the sky to use instead of the white line... but it is an amazing photo.

Thanx for you comments on DANIEL IN PRAYER


Hi Luc,
A most pleasant minimalistic composition!
Awesome colours, and I like the diagonal foreground but most of all the gradient sky...
Very well done!
Pablo -

gorgeous colours, find the 'island' a bit central, but it's more about all those beautiful hues and tones, thanx, M, (*_*)

Hi Luc... another winner here.. love the colours and compo...great stuff.

I hope the wedding went well, and you were not too stressed about it all.. I know how you feel and I was only taking photos at my friends wedding that was very low key... but we do want to do the best we can.

Kind regards

Nice landscape! Very well composed with great colours and lighting! Well done my friend!
Take care Ana:)

Like everyone else here I would like to second their motion of appreciation of the deep colors of the sky. This is what really good of being a photo enthusiast or a trekker. You always appreciate almost everything that sorrounds you.

Bonjour Luc,
Voilà un bien joli rendez-vous que ces nuages s'étaient donné au dessus de l'île Bonaventure. Magnifique combimaison de pastels, de mouvement et d'attente! BRAVO! Annie

Unbelievable view ... I need to visit Canada again to see this place in real life, maybe even at 4 a.m. as it is definitely worth it!


Magnificent! another masterpiece!

Bonjour mon oiseau matinal!

Tu te lèves toujours aussi tôt , à ce que je vois. Que ce soit pour aller travailler ou en vacance!! Cela valait la peine de se promener tôt ce matin là.

Superbe image ici! La sihouette est unique. Bravo!

I like this one the best of your night photo's Luc.
The others are nearly the same but I stick to this one
Bye bye
