After the Storm

The day after an extreme blizzard, with temperatures of -22 C (c. -8 F) and 17 hours of wind and snow, the landscape here has been transformed into sculpted dunes, with only a rare bit of remaining vegetation showing above the surface.

A Pool at the Top of Crystal Falls, Nova Scotia

In album NovaScotiaLandscapes

It's a bit of a hike and a climb to get up here, but worth it to see the top of the falls and get a different perspective. These pools gather the water at the top before they plunge down the main falls.

Corn Fields, October, Québec

In album NovaScotiaLandscapes

As we were leaving Waterloo, Québec to head back to Nova Scotia, it was raining and overcast. These corn fields on the side of the road had a beautiful light quality about them, with the metal farm buildings behind.

This is by way of a reminder of #farmfriday  tomorrow. We, the curators of this international theme, myself (+Steven Kennard), +Ellie Kennard and  +Sofie Løve Forsberg all look forward to seeing your submissions tomorrow.

Descent to Crystal Falls, Nova Scotia

In album NovaScotiaLandscapes

A field trip last weekend took me to Crystal Falls, which is deeply hidden in the woods, not altogether easy to find. It was my second trip to the falls, my second time to get lost going there. The falls are featured (from my first trip) a little later in this album.

I have had too much studio work lately which has kept me from posting on G+, so I hope this makes up for it.

Have a great weekend everyone.

Fishing For Striped Bass – Early Spring Afternoon

In album Weekly Photo Project 2013

This photograph was made yesterday on a beautiful Spring afternoon walk on the peaceful shore of the Minas Basin close to Starr's Point, Nova Scotia. As we were walking back we met another fisherman making his way to the shore who announced: 'The striped bass will be biting soon. Hope it's today.'
