The Gaspé



Nature’s palette is amazing, and in the Gaspe region of Quebec, she surpasses every expectation with cobalt blue, ivory white, tan and turquoise. The fact that she has lined the cliffs of Bonaventure Island with Northern Gannets takes your breath away, as they don’t just cling to the rock, they define it.
And just when you think you’re sated with her painting, she draws a line of black around the lip, gently adds a touch of melted caramel, and forevermore, changes your idea of a kiss.

Just like she did with the rock.

haven't been to the Gaspe in so long. Now I'm wishing I were there!

That is almost poetry! I never would have thought of gannets as having melted caramel heads!!!
Great photos, too!!

Such a lovely post and beautiful photos. The Gaspe is such a beautiful part of Canada. I have only been there once but it is on my bucket list to visit again. Thanks for stopping by my blog and thanks for sharing your part of the world.

I do not know this part of Canada at all, Susan. But your photographs just kept on getting better and better as I enlarged each in succession.

Your text binds them all together with such poetry. Wonderfully engrossing post.
