Photographer's Note

Quebec City, the capital of the province of Quebec, is celebrating its 400th anniversary of foundation in 2008. I've created a theme with my photos taken there, to celebrate this event. I hope I will be able to add other ones in the course of the year, if I am lucky to go there again.

So, I'm posting another picture of this beautiful city. My POV was in the Lower Town, which is located at shore level. This kind of elevator we see on the middle of the image is the Funiculaire, used to transport people.

Upper Town lies on the top of Cap-aux-Diamants (Cape Diamond) promontory. A high stone wall surrounds this portion of the city. The Plains of Abraham are located near the edge of the promontory.

Looking upwards, we can see part of Chteau Frontenac at left and the statue of Samuel de Champlain at right, both of them inside a thick fog.

The entire monument with the statue of Champlain is in the WS.

I hope you enjoy it.
