If there is anything that we have an abundance of in Canada it is undisturbed landscapes. When we host students from other countries the first thing they comment on it the vast amount of space we have in Canada. As a result, some of my favorite photography moments are capturing the Canadian wild (and occasionally some of the beautiful villages nestled in the hillside). I’m linking up to Debbie’s Think Back Thursday meme as I have no shortage of landscape photos to share. I hope that you will take a moment to link up and share the beauty that can be found in your area! Here are just a few of my favorites from our time in eastern Canada.

I’ve only gone though about a fifth of my photos this morning choosing pictures, but it’s become clear that many of my landscapes are actually waterscapes. I guess that’s what you get when you live on one of the world’s most beautiful islands!
