The photographs in this gallery were taken on the Gaspé Peninsula in Quebec in July 1995. Percé, a town at the tip of the peninsula, has a large outcropping rock. The primary biological attraction in this region, however, is Bonaventure Island, which lies just off the coast of Percé. Formerly inhabited, it is now a park to protect one of the largest breeding colonies of Northern Gannets. The map below shows the location of Percé and Bonaventure Island. Photographs were taken with a Nikon 6006 and (mostly) a 300mm F4 lens.
