Quebec City, p.III: Montmorency details

Near the end of our trip we took a little bus trip to the beautiful Montmorency Falls just outside of Quebec City. The falls are quite high, and while you can pay to take a cable car to the top, the wooden staircase is a lot more fun, and kinda scary as the mist from the falls makes the stairs slippery. Anyways, while we were there I noticed that the rockface into which the stairs are built had some cool patterns and offered a great opportunity to create some simple abstracts. So here’s some details of the slate rock at Montmorency Falls (and a picture of the stairs taken from the suspension bridge that crosses the falls, just so you can see what I mean 🙂 ).

  1. Oh wow, I bet being there was really amazing. Neat abstracts too. I think it is interesting with shots like these that it’s hard to discern scale. They can be small intimate landscapes, or quite grand. They make you look deep.

    • Well, I don’t know about deep 🙂

      I also like these types of abstracts, in part because of the scale, but also the focus on pattern and detail. I often find these to be a lot of fun to make and liek the challenge of trying to spot fine details in the midst of larger landscapes. Keeps me on my toes!

    • Thanks Kevin! It was really cool to stand on that bridge – you were right on top of the falls and could look straight down to the bottom. Crazy perspective!
