Fennerty Brook

On an afternoon of above zero temperature in late February I packed up and waded through waist deep snow to a favourite spot close to home.

 Each of the many brooks in the area offer an opportunity to explore shape and colour. This is a water shed area that is on the crest of Nova Scotia. One side drains to the Atlantic Ocean through Bedford and the other moves to the Bay of Fundy. This small brook winds its way to the town of Maitland on the Bay of Fundy. I return here over and over.

Early in spring I sat by the same brook and watched the last film of ice melt off the waters edge as the sky opened and sun poured in. A magical moment.
