on the Cabot Trail, Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia. The world-famous Trail forms a rough circular route around the northern part of the Island, including most of Cape Breton Highlands National Park. From ocean level to mountain tops, the Trail is an amazing vista of scenery. This part of the road is heading north up the western side of Cape Breton, following the slopes of Cap Rouge. The water is the Gulf of St. Lawrence which washes the western coast.
The shot was taken in mid-September, 2006, when the hardwoods were starting to change into their autumn colours.
