As we continue our route toward our next B&B at Saint-Luce-sur-Mer we passed the village of Saint-Fabien .

Pop. 1,893 The seaside village of Saint-Fabien, with its many summer homes overlooking the water, is surrounded by a patchwork of farmlands and peat moss operations. Stop at the tourist information bureau so you won't miss any of the sights in the Bic/Saint-Fabien area. The Raoul-Roy belvedere, located in the Bic National Park, affords a magnificent view of the water and the islands, and the opportunity to observe birds of prey. Stroll along the beach, take a heritage tour of the village.

Note the village is divided in two parts , the ''By-the-sea portion'' Saint-Fabien-sur-mer ( like Saint-Simon )with a very narrow stripe of houses and cottages following the coast line between the mountain and the Saint-Lawrence River. The upper Village , where the church , school and all services are gathered near Highway 132.

We are back on the Navigator's road i.e Highway 132 , as we are approaching the limit of Bic Village. Behind this mountain , the Saint-Lawrence River . The mountain is part of the Bic National Park , Pic Champlain in fact . We are just West of the entrance of the Park named Cap-à-l'Orignal ( Moose Cape ). See the Map . I am pointing North my camera.

Sunrays horizontally illuminating he tips of the birch trees at this time of the day. Yes you noted the light is coming from the West i.e. left side.

Technically: Image cropped at Bottom & Right. Auto levels, and played with tones to reveal the details of the forest. Added frame and title.

I invite you to visit our friend . Constantinos , after reading this from John.
Happy and safe motoring !

Quelle belle photo de paysage Robert! J'aime beaucoup la composition en bande de couleur créée par les différents types de végétation.
Très agréable pour l'œil.
Beau travail!

Bel aquarelle de couleur Robert!

Mes parents demeurant au Bic, j'adore ce coin mais malheureusement, je m'y retrouve surtout en février et pas en été depuis 3-4 ans. Merci de me montrer l'endroit.

Hi Robert,

Nice shot, great colours... excllent sharpness and sooo well presented. Love thos horizontal yellow, green then white... :D

Thanks for sharing


Une autre fantastic création Robert. Je trouve le bleu du cadre un peu 'distracting" mais un mineur details. Un p'ti WS pour mon humble vision et maintenir ma golden star. ;o)

Fantastique du point de vue composition (pentes dans différentes directions, arc de cercle dans le haut). Que dire des couleurs?
C'est comme regarder une toile.


Bonsoir Robert,
Superbe photo et composition avec des couleurs naturelles et avec une netteté incroyable...Salutations Michel

Bonjour Robert
La nature s'est parée d'un mélange subtil de tons froids et chauds devant votre lentille! Et vous avez su bien cadrer pour attirer l'attention sur ces 6 rangées parallèles dont laes couleurs vives semblent défier l'automne bien installé.
Au plaisir!
