Rocher Percé sous fond de coucher de soleil / Rocher Percé at sunset, Gaspésie, Québec, originally uploaded by bonjour.quebec.

Rocher Percé (pierced rock) is a rock formation just off the end of the Gaspé Peninsula in Quebec, Canada. The “percé” refers to the 50-foot high arch in the rock.

According to Wikipedia, “[t]here were actually two arches in the rock, until the outer arch collapsed on June 17, 1845.”

I really like the colours of the sky and water in this sunset picture; the rocks look like they’re floating out in the Gulf of Saint Lawrence.

Enjoy! If you like the photo, please drop a comment to the original photographer at Flickr.

      I have been there – it’s really quite stunning! (But I never saw the sky like that when I was there!)
