This combination of cliffs, beach and eroded rock formations is on the west coast of Cape Breton Island,Nova Scotia, along the world-famous Cabot Trail. Named after John Cabot, the Bristol-based explorer who landed on Cape Breton (or Newfoundland, nobody is really sure) in 1497. The waters here are of the Gulf of St. Lawrence.
This image was taken in September 2006 with a Sony DSCF828 camera.

    What a grand landscape, George. Incredible contrast between the smooth, flat, forground and the rough hills in the background. What a change in just a few feet !!

  • Thanks Stan, thought you’d like this one. Slowly but surely I’ll get you around the whole Trail..LOL!

    There is a Cabot Trail in Newfoundland also!! Really they don’t know where he landed first, John Cabot!! That’s very interesting!! This is a superb shot, George!!
