Mountains, Clouds & Hills

We were planning our visit Montreal when I read on Internet about Mount Megantic National Park. It was not too far from Montreal about 120 miles and so far it was closest place to the Toronto I found that has three mountain peaks over 3000 feet. Well, I still had to go to Montreal first to get there. It supposed to be a long drive and we wanted good weather to go here. After 3 days postponing trip (too hot… too cold… ) we headed to the Park located on the southern Quebec/US border. Strong winds and sun made the sky and the mountains constantly change their look. Bright sun, white clouds, and deep shadows from the clouds made the exposure tricky and difficult, but it was worth it. After flat Ontario we finally were in the mountain region. I bracketed every single shot, knowing that I won't be here back again soon. On our way back we were driving through the Eastern Township - a beautiful region in the Appalachian foothills in the southernmost part of Québec. Warm light of "magic hour" lit the hills and the villages, and every five minutes I had to stop the car and reach for the camera to take pictures, driving nuts my family, waited for the stop in Sherbrooke, the largest city on our way back to Montreal.
