Photo Pause: Sublime Sunset on the Saint Lawrence River

Note: Photography is a path to mindfulness for me, a meditative and grounding practice that prompts me to slow down and notice the world around me. May these images offer you a space to pause, a respite in your perhaps busy day, and a reminder to take a moment now & then and notice what's going on in the world around you.


On Labour Day weekend D. and I drove to my beloved East coast (New-Brunswick) for a quick visit with my parents. On the way back, just before our overnight stopover, we chose to leave the highway for a smaller road that follows the mighty Saint Lawrence River.

It was a good call.

These are a few photos from a quick, cold and windy pause at a road stop along the way. The quality of the light on the Saint Lawrence when the sun is setting is out of this world and goodness, that deep orange lichen... I couldn't get enough of either.
