Baie-D’Urfé well after dark

Inspired by some work of a photographer friend I have started to experiment with night-time photography. To get the classic star shots I need (a) an area of dark sky, no chance of that near the city and (b) the right time of year for the milky way to be visible. Neither apply at the moment but that’s OK as it makes me experiment with different subjects and techniques.

This is a classic view of the St-Lawrence at Baie-D’Urfé looking down river towards Montreal … I was rather pleased.
