Let's continue our latest travelogue. After our superb dinner and evening with Annie and Ghislain the night before, we agreed to meet again for breakfast at 07:00 AM to leave for Percé and visit Bonaventure Island.

Since our hotel, is next to the bay, I did not put the alarm. Instead I just put the window wide opened. to allow the twilight to invade our room. It did work, as I woke up well before the sun rose. I jumped in my clothes and headed straight to the beach.

Last year I stayed on the road, but this year I decided to get closer to the water. A family of canadian geese , seagulls were present. As I approached, unfortunately , they escaped quietly. I guess they do not know the difference between a camera and gun ..... Better to be safe then sorry , they surely though (LOL! ). I can not blame them !

Technically , Lowest POV and widest angle chosen to capture the widest pallet of colors. I did reduce the luminosity to enhance the contrasts and colors. I chose the POV to have the sun behind the church.

Enjoy your day!

I like the colours !
Well done Robert.

Wonderful light!
I love the depth of colour here once again

Hi Robert,
You picked a great POV here, The colours are great and I like the piece of beach in the FG and the reflection of the church tower in the water, the birds also help to breakup the water.
A nice scene well captured.

Bonjour Robert,
Superbe cette vue de l'église en haut de la côte! L'instant où le soleil passe derrière le clocher est bien choisi! Les reflets sur l'eau coulent comme du bronze liquide. Il faudrait décidement que je me lève plus tôt! Toutes mes félicitations!

Bonsoir Robert,
Magnifique lever de soleil très bien composée, les couleurs sont superbes et le point de vue excellent,j'aime bien le reflet des couleurs du ciel dans l'eau c'est supers..Mes salutations.

This is one beautiful sunrise, Robert. The colors and the crsipness is jsut amazing - pop! What I really like is the sun behind the steeple, it makes it look like there's a higher power in charge.

Hi Robert,

Oh, wonderful. That brings some warmth to me! It's cold here in the airconditioning office and it's rainy and humid outside. Nice shot!!


Beautiful sunrise Robert. Certainly worth getting up early for.

Great silhouette and marvellous colours.

Compostion as usual perfect.

Nice one.


st wonderfull Robert!

Fantastic colours and excellent combination with the silhouettes. perfect POV & composition. Well done.

Que dire de plus. cette image vaut bien plus que mille mots. La réflection un peu flou du clocher est simplement superbe. Très beau Robert.


i can only say ''oh, wow'' and sigh.....
