I love the setting of this village. Winter has just left the area making the much of the terrain look dead. I’m sure a much different picture can be obtained in the summer and the winter. I hope to return at other times of year.

A big thank-you goes out to Bill Wilson, a Halifax area Flickr contact, for helping me resolve equipment issues in order to get this session done. Two days earlier I had been to Peggy’s Cove and here to Prospect. The winds were very strong that day but with the attitude “You don’t get if you don’t try” I boldly set up to fly at both places. At Peggy’s Cove I regretted the move in having a major fight to bring the kite back down. Later, at Prospect, thinking the wind had dropped a bit, I proceeded to snap the horizontal spar of my FLED while in the process of setting up when a gust set the kite out of control with only a metre of line out. I almost always carry spare spars when travelling, but not on this occasion when I was only in Halifax for a few days. Bill responded to my pleas and helped me out with what I needed. Thus, here I was back at Prospect with a repaired kite and ideal KAP conditions.
