Fall glorious Fall on the Ile d’Orleans

After the breathtaking Fall colours in Québec City yesterday our visit to the Ile d’Orlean today was just as spectacular with our first stop at the Montmorency Falls in the Parc de la Chute-Montmorency, before crossing the bridge to the Island where we picked apples, enjoyed the best strawberries and savoured every glorious colour-filled moment.

I can’t think of a better way to celebrate my 1000th post than with these images from our memorable visit today to this beautiful Ile d’Orleans here in the Province of Québec.

Home to Vancouver and the west coast tomorrow.

If you have a few moments listen to the Lentement from Handel’s Water Music played by Jordi Savall and Le Concert Des Nations, and enjoy a few changing palettes as you do so.

Kitsilano beach park on a clear, crisp, sunny October day: Autumn perfect.

Since this is the first day of Photography 101 in which the assignment is to share an image that means home I thought this would fit perfectly.  On thechangingpalette you will find many photos of Kitsilano Beach taken at different times of the day and evening, as you will see in the related links below.
