North Saanich, Canada
Middle Head Cape Breton
Mixed Media - Photography
Ingonish village is the entrance to Cape Breton Highlands National Park, and one of the features immediately apparent is Middle Head, a long narrow peninsula or headland stretching out into the Atlantic Ocean. It's most famous today as the site of Keltic Lodge, an upscale resort complete with golf course, and quite famous. Just offshore is Ingonish Island, about 85 acres of pristine wilderness and unoccupied at present. As it has no power or any landing facilities, it remains in a very natural state.
For hikers, there is an excellent set of trails on the peninsula, one of them called the Middle Head Trail which is a good 2 hour hike over some fairly rough terrain.
In this view, I was able to photograph the peninsula and island through an opening in the hardwood trees on the road down from Cape Smokey. It was in autumn and the leaves were turning into their bright Fall colours which made a nice contrast to the blue Atlantic waters .
A little about me:
My name is Janet but I go by Jann, and I am originally from Ontario, Canada and have lived on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, since 1985.
I love the seacoast and mountains, so many of my photos are from British Columbia, Alberta, Vancouver Island, Nova Scotia, Cape Breton Island. My main photo themes are sea, coastal,villages, people, portraits, mountains, trees, lakes, waterfalls, flowers, nature,wildlife, birds, animals, landscapes, sunsets, and the great National Parks of Canada such as Jasper,Banff, Waterton, Cape Breton Highlands, Yoho, Glacier, Kootenay,Mt. Robson, Strathcona and others.
In the art world, I was initially trained as a Commercial Artist and Illustrator and eventually explored many other methods of art/style as well as other mediums. I work in pencil, ink, acrylics, watercolor and oil pastels. I have also enjoyed mosaic design and application, floor murals, wall murals, collapsible screens, floor cloths, graphic design. Explored sculpture, ceramics, jewelry, hand painted furniture, refinishing old frames with gold leaf or faux finishes, interior design and interior decorating.
With the advent of digital cameras I came to really enjoy photography both as an artistic expression as well as a foundation for capturing interesting and exciting compositions to be painted later.
My recent creative endeavour was graduating from a certified Cosmetology Program (hairstylist and esthetics) in March 2009.
