Artist's Description

The Annapolis Valley of Nova Scotia, Canada, is one of the most productive fruit and vegetable growing areas in the country. About 120 km. in length, it lies between two mountain ridges that run parallel to the Bay of Fundy.These ridges shelter it from the worst effects of ocean storms, and create a micro-climate which is relatively mild. The valley floor has deep layers of fertile glacial sedimentary soils, and the valley is especially famous for it’s apple crop.Historically, it was first settled around 1605, near the town of Annapolis Royal,and was gradually populated by Acadian settlers, until their expulsion at the end of the numerous French-English wars.

This view was taken July 3, 2007, from a look-off point on the top of North Mountain.
