Artist's Description

The Historic park at Grand Pre, in the Annapolis Valley of Nova Scotia, Canada, includes these giant willow trees among it’s many beautiful features.
In1920 the memorial park and church were developed to commemorate the expulsion of the Acadian settlers from Nova Scotia at the end of the French-English wars. Shortly after, the site was designated a National Historic Site of Canada and is now administered by Parks Canada. The expulsion was made famous by a poem by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (“Evangeline”), a young woman who was separated from her family and future husband.Her statue is mounted in front of the church. though she was almost certainly a fictional character. Longfellow himself never visited Grand Pre.

Taken in September 2006 with a Sony DSCF828 camera.
