Photographer's Note

Parc national de l'île-Bonaventure-et-du-Rocher-Percé, sculpted by time and the sea at the tip of the Gaspé Peninsula, makes an extravagant show of its rich historical heritage and amazing geological history. Its remarkable flora and fauna, including its world-renowned Northern Gannet colony, contribute to the Park's reputation as a must-see destination. This rocky bastion, a prolongation of the Appalachian Mountains extending into the waters of the Gulf of St. Lawrence, has for its fortress Bonaventure Island, and Québec tourist emblem Percé Rock as its majestic vessel of stone. The island is alive with colours and heady fragrances of wildflowers spiced with the smell of the sea. Experience the tranquillity of the forests and woodland flowers, and delight in the contrasts of sound and silence, colour and shade.
