Some natural landscape scenery from my vacation, ranging from along the St. Lawrence and Saguenay rivers, Nova Scotia, and Bar Harbor Maine. All photos taken with Sony A580.

+1 to the above, love the autumn colours and the shots look natural. (Personal preference)

Cheers

Great set - agree with the others about #2. I also like the framing in the last one.

Thanks - indeed I was on a ship - a cruise that started in Quebec, and went 12 days back to Ft. Lauderdale, FL. I flew up and spent an extra day in Quebec before the cruise. We hit Sydney & Halifax in Nova Scotia - loved them both. I stayed on foot for both places - self-guided walking tours...Sydney is small and quaint enough for a 5-6 mile walkaround, but Halifax was a long walking tour - I almost needed to take my feet off and hang them on a rack after that one! But such a perfect city to walk - so much to see. I started at the cruise port and went up through several parks, the public garden, three cemetaries, the citadel, the naval yards, the dockside, and downtown area. No idea how many miles I covered, but was gone from 9am to 4pm, on foot. Weather was windy but clear and sunny, and surprisingly warm. I'd love to come back!

Holy smokes that is alotta walking!!!
One of those graveyards might well have held some of the passengers/victims off the Titanic.
ALOT of history here in Halifax being one of the first places settled in North America,the actual very first European settlement is just down the road from me in Annapolis Royal.

Lots more to see here,come back anytime.

I did hit one of the cemeteries with Titanic victims - Fairview, which was the farthest one, way up on the north end of town -it was also the one that had the mass grave and memorial to victims of the Great Explosion of Halifax. There were some pretty clearly marked areas and stones there. Camp Hill cemetery, near the Citadel, had the Cunard family plot. And I was date-hunting all of the cemeteries, something I've always found interesting - found some 1700's graves in the Old Burying Ground cemetery.

I'd very much like to get back there someday. As a fan of British Naval history, Halifax is of course a hugely important spot and that was much of my focus while exploring town.

Zackiedawg, those are some impressive pictures. Loved the pictures of the water and rocks especially....Everything was sharp in detail. These inspire me to want to learn more and be able to eventually get where I want. Thank you for the uploads.

Cougarlady :wink:
