Condos Natakam, Essipit

Lors de mon voyage en Côte-Nord pour la mise en terre des cendres de Denise, j’ai réservé un peu au hasard un condo dans la réserve Innu d’Essipit, tout juste à côté de Les Escoumins. Je ne m’attendais pas à une si belle vue ni surtout à vivre le plus beau golden hour de ma vie. La photo de landscape n’est pas ma spécialité ni très présente sur ce blogue, mais plusieurs photos de paysages nord-côtier suivront dans les prochains jours. En attendant, pour vous mettre en appétit, voici le début du golden hour sur notre lieux de résidence temporaire.

En travaillant mes archives, je suis retombé sur cette photo prise en 2004 avec un Canon Rebel (première génération, la grise!) et la très mauvaise « kit lens » 18-55mm. J’en étais bien fière dans le temps!

La photo a été prise sur le chemin de mon travail que je détestais tant, et que j’ai fini par quitter pour… faire de la photo à temps plein!
