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.

Started photography in 1975. Took photography classes. Learned black and white dark room. Did the transition to digital in 2005. Learned a few post-processing programs and made my choice to Photoshop and Lightroom.
I like to shoot wildlife, birds, macro, landscapes and street photography to name a few.
