Why We Chose It

Islands are not what one normally conjures when thinking of Canada, but the Magdalen Islands in the Gulf of St. Lawrence are quiet archipelago of unspoiled beaches, farmland and Maritime communities with colourful fishing boats tied up to docks. This photo captures the serenity of the islands and screams summer. The arc of the coastline sets the composition and we love the vibrant colours and the mirrored movement in the low-lying clouds and tides.
