This blog got a facelift

I have been thinking about creating a new photography blog for some time. This update is not it. What I did here was switch from my much altered, out-of-the-box, WordPress “Twenty Ten” theme to “Twenty Fourteen”. The process was an exercise, and a refresher course, in tweaking themes efficiently.

Here’s the header image (taken with my iPhone) before cropping:

Saguenay Fjord

The Saguenay Fjord is a marvel, but its shoreline is only accessible by car at a few places along its length. One place is Sainte-Rose-du-Nord. The photos in yesterday’s post were taken while looking back towards the village from the small pier at the end of the main road. The vantage of this shot is from the end of the pier looking out towards the fjord’s expanse.

Autumn in Sainte-Rose-du-Nord

Maggie and I took a 5 day road trip from Montréal, first to Lac Saint-Jean, then down along the east side of the Saguenay river (fjord) to Tadoussac, and finally back home through the Charlevoix region. We had absolutely perfect weather for the first four days. And the fall colors along the route were incredible! About a third of the way between Saguenay and Tadoussac is the little village Sainte-Rose-du-Nord. Here are a couple of shots I took while we were there.
