We arrived at the Chateau Frontenac in the old city of Quebec. The city is beautiful and cold. Very, very cold.
The wind chill was hovering around -30C. Which made using a camera a particularly challenging task. During the daylight hours I kept the camera on a classic setting — f/8 and be there — as I was having a lot of difficulty rotating the command wheel to adjust my aperture setting. At night, I found a way to apply sufficient pressure to get the wheel moving. At these temperatures, I was not removing my gloves.
Here are a few shots from the day.
The Chateau Frontenac is a huge and imposing hotel.
Well appointed main areas like this one.
And this one.
There were no passengers on the carriages.
Numerous shops line the old city and each one is quite unique.
Even the inside of some of the shops show a bewildering array of product.
And a few night shots. Did I mention that it was cold? Really, really cold?
