Hello dear friends,

I come back from Québec City where my sons are living. I had the chance to see and welcome to this world my second grandson. He was born in November 25. What an happiness!

My PC is upgraded too, so I downloaded several photos. Here, an another of my village. I liked the light of this afternoon end.

I hope to be more active on the site in the next weeks. My installation in my new location is almost finished. I am in a hurry to visit you and comment your work!

Technically, I converted the Raw photo in Jpeg. Just a small crop and a light adjustment of brightness and contrast.

Have a peaceful Sunday and a nice week!

Hi Annie -
You captured a fantastic view. The colors are great and you composed this very nicely.

Incredible shot Annie! What colors! Amazing intensity to this shot! It's wonderfully balanced with thirds both vertically and horizontally. I sure have missed your shots! This is just wonderful!

Hello Annie,

It sounds like good news all round, for you, and in time for Christmas, too!

A lovely pov with the rolling waves moving forward, the pretty village perched high on the headland and all, captured against the warmth of a tangerine sky.

Kind regards,
Bev :-)

Hello Annie!
Fantastic light and very beautiful place!

Hello Annie, it looks as if you might have got wet feet in taking this shot!
You have captured a beautiful light which unites all the details of the scene.
Lovely texture of the waves.

Congratulations on the birth of your grandson.

Oh, Annie, a great shot,and spectacular view, congratullations

HI Annie...beautiful shot...great composition with alot of drama in the tones and colors. nice work.


Superb scene--the foamy sea, the distant village on top of the hill, with its houses and church, the dramatic sky with grey and pink clouds. You are lucky to live in a place like this--very picturesque...

I especially like your work on the contrast in this landscape, Annie... Beautiful composition with the roller nearly in the left bottom corner, a nice lead-in to the church and village on top of the cliff. Due to the strong contrast in the water, the sea looks more powerful to me than the buildings do ;o)

Bonjour Annie
Grâce a tes photos, Grande-Vallée est la seule ville du Québec que je reconnais du premier coup d'œil ;-) Ici, c'est la lumière qui magnifie le panorama en le dotant de teintes douces tout a fait somptueuses. Superbe.

Such a beautiful view Annie. I really like your processing here.
Great light distributed throughout, very effective composition.
Nicely done.

beautiful scenery Anie, nice colors of the cool sea and clouds,well composed as well. well captured.TFS.

Bonjour Annie
Je n'ai pas beaucoup de temps à consacrer à Treklens ces temps-ci, mais je m'en voudrais de ne pas commenter cette photo inondée de chaude lumière. Une superbe composition où le ciel aux teintes riches vient se marier avec la mer un peu nerveuse et agitée; maraige célébré à l'église de Grande-Vallée, il va sans dire. Merci de partager avec nous ton magnifique coin de pays.

...there's a magical place, fortunately for you, called "home". :)
Strangely, to me, it has something Irish in it...maybe it's the landscape...it also reminds me of "The Shipping News" movie... anyway, it's a great starting point for a dream scape...
A wonderful weekend to you, too, Annie!

hello Annie
how are you doing?
this is a great shot or i must say this is a poetry or from a magical world. fantastic shot
nice depth, hue and colours
wonderful framework and placement.

bonjour Annie

Good to see your post again.

Such a lovely color tone of the sky and the coastal view. You chose a good moment to show this mood with equal space of sky and sea. I like the tall church spire breaking up to the highest point.

tfs, bill

You have very beautiful landscapes in your galery.
This one is just amazing for the sharpness of the sea and the village in the foreground.
Congratulation for this wonderful shot.

Très, très belle image. Les couleurs sont superbes.
L'effet de l'eau est très artistique.

Beautiful photo, very good POV.
Fantastic color, light and great scenery as usual.
I like the style of your composition.
Nicely done,

The water, waves and road come together nicely in the bottom right. The light is very nice and the headland with the church and houses make a nice focus of attention. I like the wide open sense this picture gives.TFS
happy holidays

Superb light and beautifully managed levels throughout this shot. Nice simple use of framing creating a very effective image overall. Inspiring work.

Great natural framing of the town between the dark clouds and the ocean. My preference would have been for a faster shutter speed to catch a crisp wave. The late afternoon orange adds mood here. The leading line of the road to the church is good too. Very nice posting Annie. TFS. Karin

Beautiful warm colours and great sharp details in the background - a landscape shot with such impact.
