This weekend was amazing and with the perfect weather to boot.
I think this is one of the most beautiful Parcs I have been to so far, beauty is everywhere. It is known to be an ideal spot to see the Lachine rapids up close and if you are a bird lover/watcher or you just simply enjoy hearing the joyous sounds of nature this is a place for you.
The first time I visited Parc des Rapides, I honestly did not expect much other than being able to see the Lachine rapids closer than I have seen before. It was definately closer and more came along with that as I started to walk along the pathways. I did not bring the right camera though and I should have realized that when I was packing up. I brought along the Yashica D which is an automatic reach for me whenever I plan to go anywhere but not a wise choice for this particular excursion.
I learnt my lesson from the first time and on my return I brought along the Minolta XD with a 75-150mm f/4 lens. There was somewhat of an adjustment needed as 35mm is not a format I work with very often and it has a completely different formation than that of the Yashica D.
Before I introduce some of the photographs from Stanstead, Quebec I wanted to share a few from Parc des Rapides.
