Some pictures from Quebec

September 28, 2008 @ 09:40 By: gordon Category: Out and about, Photography, Quebec City 2008

Quebec City - Day 1 011I drove down to Quebec City to attend the week-long 16th General Assembly and International Scientific Symposium of the International Council on Monuments and Sites (ICOMOS) on Saturday.  Yesterday evening, I wandered around Old Quebec with one of the other people from Ottawa and took some pictures.  It was raining, so everything was shiny and the clouds glowed in the lights giving the buildings a kind of spooky aura.

You can see the pictures in my gallery.

    Hey, some of those pictures are pretty slick. I need to upgrade my camera so I can take pictures like that… or at least learn how to use the manual settings better 😉

    Is that what is or was the Hilton located at the top of the old cobble stone road just outside the gates to the old city? If so, I stayed there once for a few nights..

    @Ken: I used my Canon SD850IS (the point-and-shoot) to take those, not my digital SLR. Primarily, it was a matter of disabling the flash and letting the camera do the rest. There is a night mode on my camera, but I don’t recall whether I used it. Because the exposure can be longer, it helps to brace the camera against something, though as you get better at it you’ll probably find you can handhold some of them.

    @Rob: The hotel in the picture above is the Chateau Frontenac.
