    Dramatic Sunrise, Grands Jardins National Park, Charlevoix region, Quebec, Canada.

    "Using a camera appeases the anxiety which the work-driven feel about not working when they are on vacation and supposed to be having fun. They have something to do that is like a friendly imitation of work: they can take pictures."
    -Susan Sontag

    In 1988, UNESCO embedded the Parc national des Grands-Jardins within the World Biosphere Reserve in Charlevoix, confirming its international position as a vital element in the conservation of the biodiversity of this exceptional site. Two major forest fires have since devastated the Grands-Jardins forest, one in 1991 and another in 1999. Although these events initially appear to be dramatic, they are nevertheless beneficial for a number of animal species. Contrary to what most people would think, the post-fire ecosystem is dynamic, and this gives the Parc national des Grands-Jardins territory its special nature. (Ref: SEPAQ)

      spectacular.... and sad. the colors are dramatic and fantastic.
      our own woods - yes, we have a mountain in the midst of our desert that is wooded with pine, oak, aspen, maple - has suffered horrible fires. Just thinking about it brings tears to my eyes. So sad - especially when a human has caused it.
      fantastic photo, Gaëtan!

      I like the way how the foreground plants form a screen.... something that makes me think of some Group of Seven paintings. With the wonderfully coloured clouds and sky in the distance, this is awesome!!!
