The newly created Halifax Regional Municipality extends throughout the area that was formerly known as Halifax County. It is an immense geographical area and includes two hundred or more diverse communities, each with its own history and stunning natural beauty. This vibrant new community has many unique local features, cultural events, and outstanding landmarks.
In this stunning visual journey through one of Canada's most historic regions, rising photographic talent Donna Barnett has captured the rich heritage and exciting colours that make up this diverse area. From the salty waterfront bustle of Halifax Harbour and tree-lined streets-capes of Dartmouth, to the haunting beauty of Peggy's Cove; from the classic picture postcard fishing villages that dot the eastern shore, to the inland urban communities with historic roots. There are also the rural farmlands of the Musquodoboit Valley and the hills of Dean and Dutch Settlement, a completely different scene with every page. Donna Barnett presents a visual travelogue of the many areas that are now Halifax. Whether your interest is culture, business, or nature, you will delight in this wonderful collection of photos that reveals the new reality of Halifax – a growing region with a myriad of tales to tell.
