About my background : I live in Val-d'Or, a Northwestern small town in the province of Quebec (Canada). As a 60 year-old amateur photographer and artist (I love drawing and painting and am currently experimenting with colored and pastel pencils) who cannot resist beautiful images - they attract me like raw meat attracts flies.
I've watched this site for more than a year now and I am still amazed at the fabulous beauty of the works posted here. Since most of the people whose pictures are commented on or favorited are curious about the people doing it - or so I figure -, I decided to upload a few of my pictures too.
Let me add that I am very grateful and highly admirative of all those young, athletic and talented people who climb mountains, go through deep forests or confront rocky fiery coastlines, etc. in order to share with us all the wonders or our natural world.
