Rising Waters. March 8, 2011

It’s a sure sign of Spring’s approach when the Deerfield begins to rise, and though it’s not really in “Spring Flood” stage, it’s certainly up from a couple of days ago.

The dam at Salmon Falls:

…and looking upriver from the Buckland side:

Up close it’s a swirling miasma of mists, making one grateful for the railing at the overlook:

That’s a far cry and a deep shudder from the idyllic swimming hole of Summer.

And yet, above the tumult hovers a reminder that there’s beauty in everything, if one looks at it in the right light:

It’s hard to believe the high country is still so tightly gripped by Winter, but it is!

More on that, next.

The Potholes, yes? Spent many a hot summer day swimming there. Great pictures.

Today we took another long drive along the south shore beyond Halifax and now that it’s still far from ‘the season’ we actually went to Peggy’s Cove. I only wished I’d brought my camera when we were close to the lighthouse that sits among huge flat stones.

The place looks nothing like your beautiful pictures here except in essence.. early spring on the eastern side of the continent. Parts of the Nova Scotia coast look like the edge of the world. I wish I weren’t camera shy.

Adam, yes, The “Ptholes,” in the kind of nick which gives local EMTs the willies! šŸ™‚

Susan, don’t be shy – Edge-of-the-World photographs are stunning, even if they’re first efforts, and we’d love to see your environs.
