A Path


Looking across the Northwest Arm this week
 I noticed this snow / ice
covered road leading up into the forest.

    1. Hi Jean. Good to see you. This road I believe leads to a major road that runs through the western communities of Halifax. But it would be fun to explore!

    1. Unless it is private property, we just may venture there when the ice/snow is gone.

  3. And where does the path go? Curious minds want to know!

    1. That area is called Purcell's Cove and this particular spot looks to be one of the only undeveloped areas....as the rest on both sides has been developed. Probably owned by someone who is waiting for the right time to sell/develop.

    1. I will have to investigate and find out! Probably not though, as the area all around this land is pretty populated.

    1. Probably not as I suspect it is private property. But i will drive by that area to see what the deal is.
      Thanks for dropping by Kathy.

    1. That's what I thought too Ivan when I glanced over the Arm and noticed it. It was mainly a cloudy day with the occasional sun peeking through and highlighting this road.
      It was pure ice that day....I'll wait till spring....I don't need another fall on ice! lol

  9. Interesting, might be fun to go down on one of those "saucer" sleds.

    Nice study in B/W

  10. Hi Jim! The road is so beckoning! The black and white with the soft trees is lovely! The only bit not developed? I wish Nature Conservancy or somesuch would buy it! Have a good day!

    1. I thought so too when I noticed it Louise. I cropped the original and focused in on this area, edited in b/w and liked what I saw.
      That would be nice if it was given to the 'public'....
      Thanks Louise, good to hear from you.

  11. It's so lyrical. If you hadn't said what it was, I would have wondered for a while.

    1. I suppose it is Mitch. It has this mystery about it, especially with that ice and snow.

  13. Love this Jim -- did you do some editing or did it just come out this way?

    1. Hi Nancy. The road looks exactly the way it was on that day.....to give more focus on the road I cropped and edited/softened the rest.
      Glad you liked it.
