Madeleine Archipelago Stock Photos. Travel Photographer Carlo Piccinelli has just published a new set of Madeleine Archipelago photos.The islands of the Madeleine archipelago, are located in the Gulf of St. Lawrence, have the characteristic of being the top of gigantic columns of salt. From the mines present on some islands, we extract the salt exported to Canada and the USA and used in winter to be spread on icy roads. Today the archipelago thrives on tourism, fishing for lobsters and production of smoked herrings. An archipelago for sports tourists thanks to the local organizations to hiking and kayaking.Click here to see more images from Carlo Piccinelli.
