Forest, Nova Scotia

Forest, Nova Scotia

Continuing from last week's Lost & Found, here's a quick glimpse of another part of Canada's east coast, Nova Scotia. I didn't have a very solid mental picture of the Maritimes before going there in 2010, so of course there were surprises - I certainly didn't expect such lush forests!

I wish I could remember exactly where this forest park was, but unfortunately my camera  at the time (the Epson R-D1s rangefinder) didn't have GPS - or autofocus, for that matter - so I don't exactly know. I flew into Halifax and drove up to Cape Breton Island, staying in Cheticamp for a few days, then flew out of Sydney, so that's a rough guide!

Here's an extra bonus image - there was a town where a number of ageing boats were pulled up on shore, possibly for maintenance, or possibly they were beyond that point. I liked the texture of the hull, the lines of the boards, and the general wear & tear. I took a number of images, including some that were just peeling paint, but I think this one is my favourite...
