This is photo is from my latest trip to Forillon National Park which is located at the Atlantic coast of Canadian province of Quebec. I have already featured this spot in one of my Photo Location Guide articles. This time the weather was not very favorable for travel and landscape photography. It was unusually hot with humid air and no clouds for the duration of my trip. The only time with the acceptable conditions was sunrise hours.
My schedule was simple. I wake up for sunrise, shoot for 2-3 hours and then leave all my photo gear at the motel and spend the rest of the day hiking, whale watching, kayaking bringing only point-and-shoot camera with me (Lumix LX7).
That morning I decided to climb Mont Saint-Alban to take some aerial shots from observation point. After steep hike with all my gear I managed to take few interesting shots before last cloud disappeared and direct sunlight made landscape lifeless and boring.
I was happy I could capture such amazing scene but I was dead tired and it was only 8am. The rest of the day I spend lying on the beach and sipping beer.
