  Anyone who has recently travelled to Nova Scotia on the Trans-Canada Highway has seen the wind farm at Amherst, Nova Scotia which is at the border between New Brunswick and Nova Scotia. In fact, the Nova Scotia visitor's centre is a good place for viewing them. I chose to wander the dirt roads on the opposite side of the highway, which is part of the area used by Maritime Sod Ltd. for growing lawn turf. My shots of the turbines are quite distant but benefit from a foreground of rows of sod fields and the trans-canada highway itself. Also,...

  Pugwash is a small village on the Northumberland Strait shore of Nova Scotia. Many years ago our family had a short holiday at a friend's cottage not too far from Pugwash and this town was the local hub for essential supplies. It is also the home of one of the Windsor Salt salt mines. These photographs were taken using a remote-controlled camera suspended below a kite line (Kite Aerial Photography - KAP).     Visit my website gallery Pugwash, Nova Scotia - KAP 2013-14 - April 22, 2013 to see more images from this session.

  Tatamagouche is a small town where the Waugh River and the French River empty into Tatamagouche Bay on the Northumberland Strait shore of Nova Scotia. For this session I was in a small rest area alongside highway 6 just to the east of town with a hillside cemetery with trees obstructing the view of the village from my location. I knew the town was there; it was just a question of having the camera pointing in the right direction and lifting it higher than tree level. One of the things that I've appreciated about Atlantic Canada in the spring...

  I love the setting of this village. Winter has just left the area making the much of the terrain look dead. I'm sure a much different picture can be obtained in the summer and the winter. I hope to return at other times of year. A big thank-you goes out to Bill Wilson, a Halifax area Flickr contact, for helping me resolve equipment issues in order to get this session done. Two days earlier I had been to Peggy's Cove and here to Prospect. The winds were very strong that day but with the attitude "You don't get if...
