Now that's sweet!

Coming from Nova Scotia, I'm trying to place the location. Somewhere along the Bay of Fundy shore perhaps (great lobster pound/restaurant there at Hall's Harbour)?

Bluenose, my photo was taken at a picnic spot in Cape Bretton Island National Park, along the Cabot Trail, south of Neils Harbour, but north of Ingonish. It's a nice area with a trail leading off from a parking area, and picnic tables every 20 or 30 meters along the trail. I remember that there was a stream with water the color of tea flowing into the ocean at this spot, and I thought that was very interesting. I wish I could remember the location more exactly, but that's about the best I can do. I'll check some maps to see if I can nail it down better than this fairly vague description.

Thanks, you've narrowed down the location well enough. Between Neil's Harbour and Ingonish there's Black Brook Cove, Bluff Head, MacKinnon's Cove, Boiler Point, Green Cove, Broad Cove and Red Point.

It's been quite a few years since I've been around the Trail but I still remember the scenery and the views.

Regards

Yes, now that you've named a few places I remember that I took my photo at the Black Brook Cove picnic area. By the way, the night before we picked up our daughter in Wolfville, we had dinner at the lobster pound restaurant you mentioned in Halls Harbour. It was one of the few clear sunny evenings we had on the trip. We sat on the deck and watched the tremendous tide change as we ate a delicious seafood dinner. We can't wait to return.

Some great & very diverse shots here - shows such fine and varied interpretation of a simple "challenge," and also shows some great talent. Keep 'em coming!

Ok, had little time to work with my K2000 and new lens, but thought I would submit for this month's challenge. Here's my idea of rock!

What fun these pictures are! I love the various creative ways of expressing the idea of "rock". There's a few more that could be included, I'll have to think of something. I do have a rock picture taken last weekend, but kept hoping I'd get something better. We'll see...

HI All

Heres my attempt for this Month. I Had to Clone out a rather annoying Guard rail behind the Rock. If this is an Issue I Will remove this and post the original.
Anyway this rock was the pet project of several Kids Living on What Else "Punkup Road". The kids were bored and wanted Something to do.
As you can see our New England weather has taken a toll on the paint. but when Completed in 2005 It was a fantastic paint job.
