My wife and I went for a 8km bike ride this week through the back trails of Mont Orford National Park here in Quebec. About 4km in we arrived at a secluded beaver made pond,"Etang de la Castorie".

We stopped for a little lunch and I took a few photos. Very peaceful and relaxing, we were the only people there.

I took my ST80 refractor along with the Canon 20D for birding pics but most of the photo opportunities were closeup or macro.

I think I'll grab the Astroscan and come out here some night when the moon's not up.

Here's the pond.
