Our first sunset shoot and an opportunity to get to know one another.

Lets meet up for our first nature/landscape shoot in Parc National des Iles-de-Boucherville. This park is a collection of islands with hiking trails in the middle of the St. Lawrence River, and is only a 20 minute drive from downtown Montreal!

To learn more about this park, please visit http://www.sepaq.com/pq/bou/index.dot?language_id=1

The idea is to meet  in the afternoon so that we can explore the area for good vantage points to photograph the sunset, which will be around 8 pm. The light will be good for photography from around 6 pm onwards. The calm waters should make for some beautiful reflection shots!

We will meet a 4 pm at the visitor's centre, which is also called the "Discovery and Services Centre". It is located at the question mark on this map: http://www.sepaq.com/dotAsset/bab205d7-0aa0-4a73-b0d5-4427247539a7.pdf

Please note that you will have to pay an entrance fee of $ 6.50 at the centre. I will try to get that fee down to $ 5.50 since we are a large group.

I have sent out a more detailed communication to all those of you who have said they would come. If you did not receive it, please let me know.

See you on Sunday!

      In front of the Tim Horton
      See you Soon!

  • Catherine

    Hi to Maria, Roberta & Pablo,
    I have room in my car for you 3.
    Car pool meet up is at 3:30pm
    In front of the Tim Horton corner of Jean-Talon & Hutchison.
    I have access to my e-mail & the meet up web site.
    If you cancel, please send me a note
    If not see you soon

    I like the hurly set up, leaving Mtl at 3:30 and beeing at the entrance of the park around 4pm'ish
    because
    1- walking around with the afternoon light will be great before the sun set. Great exercise.
    2- to find a nice spot for the sun set location can take at least 45-60min of walking around.

    Thank you Christoph
    See you at the main parking lot
