Valley, The Lookoff & Cape Split

Today (well as it is after midnight technically it was yesterday) Edward and I hiked Cape Split in Scott’s Bay, Nova Scotia. It is 8 km each way out and back which turns out to be a 4-5 hour hike. It took us 4 hours and roughly 15 minutes. It was a beautiful but exhausting walk/hike. Neither of us had ever done it before. We love walking and hiking but have only every really done easy ones. This is classified by the provincial park system as a moderate hike. Now I know why. Wow was it ever long!

We started out at a place called The Lookoff which was on the road to Cape Split. I have taken pictures there before but not for a long time. You can see the whole Annapolis Valley from The Lookoff. READ MORE

Mahone Bay & Lunenburg

These photos are actually old photos I found on my camera when I was getting it ready to go to Peggy’s Cove the other day. They are from October 16, 2016. I did a quick search on my blog and don’t think that they were ever added here. Sadly for me I can not take credit for the first two. My lovely husband seems to have a better eye then I do when it comes to photography sometimes. I suppose I should be proud of that fact

I remember the drive. It was a beautiful sunny fall day, as is obvious from the photos but it was very cold out. I remember wanting to go for a wanting to get out and walk around Mahone Bay but deciding against it because it was too cold. Later in Lunenburg we did decide to get out and walk around a little bit but it didn’t last long because if I remember correctly I didn’t bring a jacket with me just a thin sweatshirt, dumb on my part.

Peggy’s Cove

So I decided since yesterday was Saturday and since I was feeling miserable with a cold that it was time to get out, get some fresh air and let Edward drive somewhere new and ignore the fact I felt like crap. So he drove us to Peggy’s Cove just outside Halifax. It was a beautiful day to go since it was 20°C out. It wasn’t super busy. Lots of room for climbing on the rocks and taking photos.

First we found a path between the Swiss Air Flight 111 Memorial and Peggy’s Cove so that I could get some photos from further away and then we went into Peggy’s Cove to go walk on the rocks and take pictures. It was beautiful but windy which was perfect for some nice wave pictures as well. This has always been one of my favorite places to go for a walk or to take pictures READ MORE

Photoshop/Lightroom

I am so excited I purchased a year of the Photography plan for Photoshop & Lightroom. I have never used Lightroom before but love using Photoshop. I really want to get back into photography since I have a perfectly good camera sitting on a shelf at home doing nothing. A Cannon Rebel T5 DSLR. Which I bought 2 or 3 years ago now. I’m even still paying on it and it has been sitting in my closet. What a waste. Time to get some use out of it and maybe concentrate on something other then diabetes.

So to help with that I purchased an annual plan that includes Photoshop CC, Lightroom CC, Lightroom Classic CC and 20GB of cloud storage which I really don’t need but why not since it comes with it. I am so excited to play around with it and do some tutorials and such. If anyone has any suggestions please let me know! I used to spend hours playing around with Photoshop. READ MORE

Our Trip To Maine

Oops, almost a month since I last blogged. I said I wasn’t going to do that…

Eddie and I took a side road trip on our own down the coast of Maine into Bar Harbor while we were in New Brunswick the weekend before last to go shopping for our wedding dress material in Bangor. I took some pictures with my camera. I haven’t even used it much since I got it. I apologize for the image heavy post. READ MORE
