Photographer's Note

Percé Rock is one of the largest and most spectacular natural arches in the world.

When Jacques Cartier explored the St. Lawrence river, it seems that the rock was linked to the Cape and that there were four arches. As years go by, three of those have disappeared, the last having collapsed on June 17, 1845. It is estimated that the current arch will also disappear in 400 years.

The real exposure time is 40 seconds, with a neutral filter equivalent to 8 stops added density.

In workshop, another view of the Percé Rock.
