Day 226- Valley View

by Drohask August. 14, 2010 4660 views

Feeling up for a little adventure, today we packed up our camera and our trusty four-legged companion and headed to the Annapolis Valley. This is an area about an hour from Halifax which has plenty of scenic farmland and is also the home of Acadia University, which happens to be Hask's alma mater.

We spent the day touring around Grand Pre, Wolfville, Scot's Bay, and surrounding communities. We ended up with such a variety of photos that we simply couldn't share just two and decided to post a few of our favourites in sequential order.

Dro captured the rusted metal on one of the light fixtures in the North Grand Pre Community Church, a small church that was constructed in 1861

Dro also snapped this image of the organ in the church. The keys were a little out of line from age.

Hask photographed this “Door 17” in Grand Pre. This is one of several art installations throughout the Annapolis Valley as part of a community art project. Developed by Nicole Evans and Pat Farrell, the staircase literally rises up from the ground to a door that appears to lead nowhere.

Dro snapped this image of sprinklers watering a field of crops.

This is a Drohask collaboration to create a panoramic view of the Annapolis Valley from a location aptly named the Lookoff. The original image is approximately 196“ x 35” but unfortunately the view is much smaller here.

Hask photographed some of the beach rocks along the shoreline in Scot's Bay.

Dro photographed two curious passers-by in Scot's Bay. The couple appears to be peeking out into the abyss.

Dro's take on a little brook that ran beneath a bridge in Scot's Bay.

This is Hask's interpretation from the same vantage point.

Hask found this fuzzy little caterpillar enjoying the beach as well.

As the sun went down, we spotted an elderly couple walk onto the beach, hand in hand. They sat quietly on the rocks as they watched the sunset together. Hask managed to capture this moment without disturbing them.

Wanting to try our hand at capturing star trails, we headed into Wolfville and found a quiet dark area to shoot from. This is Hask's attempt at capturing the motion of the stars around Polaris, which is in the center near the bottom.

Dro's image includes some of the landscape of Wolfville as the stars swirl above.
