High in the mountains of Quebec, Canada lies a beautiful 205-square-mile natural conservation area named La Mauricie National Park. Despite the impending wintry weather, autumn is arguably the best time to visit La Mauricie, since the park boasts a vibrant array of fall colors—thanks to its many sugar maple and yellow birch trees.
Photographer Pierre Leclerc captured this stunning photograph of the park in its autumn glory from the shores of glassy Modene Lake:
“To be a photographer is to be aware of things around you,” writes Leclerc on his website. “Lots of people miss the most beautiful of things. You need to appreciate nature and see it as it is. You need to be aware.”
Leclerc is a landscape, wildlife, and action sports photographer based in Quebec, Canada. His work has been featured in many outdoors-based publications, including Canadian Geographic magazine.
