It was designated a National Historic Site of Canada in 1980.

This was captured this morning in the fog.
Turned it to b/w because there is little colour anyways in the original and I think that this is meant to be b/w.

It stands high on a bluff overlooking the mighty St. Lawrence River.

The Château Frontenac was named in honor of Louis de Buade, Count of Frontenac, who was governor of the colony of New France from 1672 to 1682 and 1689 to 1698. The Château was built not too far from the historic Citadelle, whose construction Frontenac had begun at the end of the 17th century. ref: Wikipedia.

    This is gorgeous Yannik. Love the effect created by the fog.

  • Merci chère Jacinthe pour les commentaires.
    Comme tu peux voir dans ma description, je l’ai travaillé dans Lightroom et j’ai terminé dans Photoshop pour la signature sur ma photo à l’aide de mon action créée dans Photoshop.

    Oht his is so beautiful in the fog! What a great shot Yannik! I love how the top peaks through but we get the perspective with the foreground at the bottom as well! Excellent composition!

  • I deeply appreciate the great comment Joanne.
    I had a few to chose from but as you say, I felt that this one was the best of them all for the houses at the bottom.
    It shows that the chateau dominates the surrounding houses. Like the castles do. And it brings dimensions.
    Have a great evening :)
