A Stunning Sunset

We arrived in Riviere du Loup at about 7pm to a fine evening.  In fact, the rain did not persist more than about 50km north of Fredericton.

The one night we are staying here was merely designed to break our journey en route to Quebec City so we had no real expectations.  Our host, Jerome greeted us and suggested that the waterfront park (about 5 minutes drive) was a great place to view the sunset.  He then told us that Lonely Planet rates Riviere du Loup as the second best sunsets in the world after Hawaii.  We decided to take his advice and headed off with a bag of biscuits, some cheese and vegie sticks for a light dinner as we had our main meal at lunch.

The residual cloud ensured some amazing effects and we were not disappointed.  These are shown in sequence and span a period of 35 minutes.  They are just 6 of over 70 shots that I took.  Thank goodness for digital photography.

  1. I didn’t see any sunsets to rival that in Hawaii.
