Photographer's Note

The St. Lawrence River is one of the most important rivers in North America. From its source in the Great Lakes, the river is 1200 kilometres in length and the gateway to the interior of the continent. For over 200 kilometres the St. Lawrence forms the border between the United States and Canada.

Riviere-du-Loup is one of the oldest settlements in Canada and was first mentioned in 1615, seven years after the founding of Quebec City. Today it is a bustling little city which services a large part of the Lower St. Lawrence region and acts as a tourist gateway for exploration of the Gaspe Peninsula.
