Solstice of the Nations at the Parc du Mont Royal

World Wide Panorama, a project from the University of California Berkeley

The drum salutes the sun at the summer solstice on Canada’s National Aboriginal Day. The ceremony, first celebrated in 1996, is held all across Canada. In 2007 First Nations leaders and dignitaries from different levels of the Canadian government gathered to celebrate the Solstice of the Nations. Innus from the Uashat-Maliotenam community, lit a fire that was passed to the organizers of the Fête Nationale du Québec to bring together and create stronger bonds of friendship, between the peoples of Québec.

Panoramic photography shot in June 2007 for the World Wide Panorama project, behind the Kondiaronk Belvedere on Mount Royal.

The mountain with a capital M – World Wide Panorama

World Wide Panorama, a project from the University of California Berkeley

Every three months the World Wide Panorama (WWP) gathers photographers from all around the world to picture their environment under one same subject, which this time was Elevation. On the previous one I shot the basement of Museum of Archaeology and History Pointe à Callière.

This time I decided to participate on the last moments. Time was running out, deadline was rushing in and I haven’t given much thought about it so I run to the only geological landmark that is over 1ft above ground around here: the Mountain (“la Montagne“) as we all call it or, the Mont Royal.

You can also see the Kondiaronk belvedere and the Chalet du Mont Royal in this 360 degree panorama or in this HD panoramic photo where you can zoom deep in to check the details.
