This is a unique place in Montreal’s Lachine borough. As part of the Musée de Lachine (Lachine Museum) more than 20 huge sculptures are permanently featured in the neighboring René-Lévesque Park. My favorites are 5 enormous stone leg sculptures by David Moore.
Since René-Lévesque Park is one of my favorites places for landscape photography in Montreal I had photographed these sculptures on many occasions, but this was the first sunset in the middle of winter with light blasting through the stones. It was a perfect condition for hdr photography.
