[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Back soon with more images from our Journey to Saguenay, Lower Saint-Lawrence and Gaspesia.
In the meantime a sunny day captured earlier in October , in my neighborhood.

Sorry for the delay.... This photo was taken a few blocks away from our home. We have streams going through the city ending up in the St. Lawrence River. This one is passing about 500 m from our house.

But here I took this one from the Boulevard Rigaud. We are looking North. We intended to view these colors during our journey later. Howver , we left too late, or the leaves fell down too early ( whatever....). So we missed the best. But we did have a great time nevertheless. The vertical shot was taken. I cropped the top part, to make it a bit more suqre. I choose the minimal frame so you can enjoy it almost fully. An alternative frame was added as a WS.

Thank you for the numerous feedback on this one. They are much appreciated and motivating.

Have A GREAT DAY everybody.

Merci pour ces couleurs ce matin et bonne journée!

Many thanks for your comment on
Windeward Reflections

Nice shot, Robert! Love the way the stream comes out of the wonderful trees! The framing works well but the 'squareness' of the photo, hmm...

Very focused, pretty, and great compo.

Wonderful composition. I love the autumn color. Well done.

Hi Robert,
Gorgeous, stunning, brilliant colours and Very nice composition.Congratulations!!
Best Wishes

Great colors, Robert: you are blessed with an abundance of colorful vegetation! Out west, most is yellow, cotton or alder, with red provided by some brush, and of course planted trees in the gardens.
I also want to take the opportunity to thank you for all the wonderful tips you provide on your intro page.

Hi Robert,
i really love this colours. Unfortunately it doesn´t look like this here. :-(
Your picture looks great, the POV is very good. Excellent! Well done,

Hi Robert,
There is no doubt... Canada has the autumn colours!
I don't think you can find the strong red you see here anywhere else...
Well composed presentation!
Pablo -

What a beautiful shot. The colors are just so warm and vibrant. I do miss autumn. Living in Florida, we don't see of of the gorgeous fall foliage. Nice job!

Wonderful fall colors, Robert. You were there at the perfect time and brought us along. Great shot with great details (it must be real close to the 200K limit). I don't have anything to offer on the shot itself, but I wonder whether a white frame might work a bit better by matching the clouds and disappearing.

Bonjour Robert,
Durant mon absence de la semaine dernière, j'ai ratée celle-ci. Quelle déploiement de couleurs en pleine ville, en plus. Avec ce petit ruisseau, on se croirait en pleine forêt. Excellente composition. J'aime particulièrement les réflections rougeâtres sur l'eau. Bravo! Annie

Stunning colours Robert!

The photograph is so crisp and bright I can feel the cool fall air. A beautiful postcard scene you have captured and shared with us here Robert. THANKS!!!

Love and Peace Always,

Very lovely images from Canada (i feel like visiting again!)
I think this is one country that comes alive with splendid colour in the fall!

Nice shot here by the way!
Regards, Daniel

WoW! Lovely colours! A perfect Autumn..

Great colours and composition. This is a pleasure to look at.

Absolutely superb autumn landscape. The colours are magnifical. Excellent compo and light. Very, very nice photo.


Hi Robert.

Greetings from Sydney,Australia.
A lovely composition-nice how the stream leads the eye back in to the scene.
Well done.TFS

Hello Robert, perfect autumn shot. Great colors captured and nice POV.

Thanks for the WS on "Cream Dream" Vandana

See, I wish the weather in England wasn't so dull, the light available really doesn't do the autumn leaves justice! Also the scenery where I live is nothing compared to Canada. Must make more use of those relatives in Aurora... Anyway, fantastic shot, beautiful colours!

déferlement de rouge d'orange , de rouge.... splendide composition. presque un tableau !

Quel chance vous avez de vivre dans un cadre pareil !
