    Oh! What a delightful set! That Skyline trail looks wonderful! And 5, 9 and 10 are beautiful! Seeing your images just makes me want to make this trip even more!
     
  3. So green, peaceful and inviting.
     
  4. This set is so appealing on its own but also because it reminds me of my and my wife's trip there in 2010. When we were at White Point, we came upon a group of 18 geologists from the organization, Eurogranites, who were attending their organization's 40th annual meeting and taking day trips throughout the area. They went to Cape Breton Island that year because of the geological clues in the land having to do with the construct of the continents before they separated. When they saw my camera gear, they asked me to take a group photo. They thought I was a genius because I posed them above a rock formation. :ROFLMAO:
     
  5. Thanks, Karen. It's worth a trip. Actually, it would probably be prettier in the Fall, but July was when we had time.

    Yup.

    :D. Clever you.

    Our daughter went there last Fall for an ethnomusicology conference in Sydney. There is quite a bit of traditional music performed there, mainly Scottish.
     
  6. You capture a place special to many here and to others who view the images.
     
  7. A good set.

    Cheers
     
  8. Fun to see your images, thanks for sharing.
