Pictures from photo gallery: "Sunset Pictures"

This surreal sunset comprised of muted pinks, purples, oranges and yellows, was captured over the town of Perce and the famous Perce Rock in Quebec. Due to its vast natural beauty and stunning surroundings, this area along the Gaspesie Peninsula and Highway 132 is a perfect location to watch a sunset and this picture is just an example of one. The sunset is so intense that it makes the water shimmer the same colour as the sky so the horizon seems to blend together.

Many tourists flock to this town along the Gaspesie Peninsula every year to see the Perce Rock because it is considered to be one of the most impressive natural arches in the world. An arch forms when an area underneath a wall of rock erodes away and they most commonly form out to sea where the water can gradually erode away the rock over thousands of years. There once used to be two arches on that outcrop, but one arch fell down in 1845.

The Parc National de l'lle-Bonaventure-et-du-Rocher-Perce was designated a national park in 1985 because a bird sanctuary needed to be protected on nearby Bonaventure Island and Perce Rock. Visitors to the park can take a boat ride in and around Perce Rock to see the natural arch and the sanctuary. Of course, don't forget to take in a glorious sunset while you are there.
