A lot of people ask me where is the best spot for a photographer to spend a day in Montreal. My answer to that question is always the Old Port of Montreal. First, it’s a great place to visit pretty much anytime of the year. In summer you will find people enjoying the local street performers, the food trucks and of course the pedal boats. However, in the winter you have the ice rink which overlooks the city skyline at sunset.

It’s best to keep the camera at the ready while strolling through the Old Port of Montreal, you never know when inspiration will strike and the light will be just right.
