Hi All,

I am planning a bit of a road trip in Canada to explore your beautiful country next year when i stumbled across your website. While im very much an amature, i love to take photos so was hoping some Canadians can recommend me some places i should visit while on my trip :thumbup:
Im going to be driving from Halifax -> Pei -> Riviere-Du-Loop -> Quebec City -> Montreal -> Ottawa -> Toronto -> Tobermory

now im going to do the touristy things like see the Niagara falls and explore the cities on route but im hoping you guys can recommend me some places on route that maybe only the locals would know about? :fingerscr Would love some landscapes to shoot

Thanks all

Welcome to the forum, T180985... if you play your cards right you might end up with a few local tours rather than just a bunch of pointers. If you are not coming until next year there's lots of time to work that out but I'm in Halifax and wouldn't mind helping you find some locations in and around our city. I'll just have to learn more about what you are interested in photographing.

I'm in downtown Toronto and can recommend some urban places to photograph if you're into that at all. If so, let me know and I'll send you a list, either now or closer to the time. I might miss a message posted here if you reply closer to your visit, so you could always direct message me in either Flickr or Twitter. I have the same username.

Hope you have a wonderful trip! I've never been east of Quebec City myself.

Welcome aboard T180985. I see you have Tobermory or your list. This is an amazing area for landscape opportunities, as is the whole Bruce Peninsula. Be sure to visit Cyprus Lake area trails along the shore of Georgian Bay. Many wonderful scenes along with caves to explore. Don't forget the infamous "Grotto" cave. (attached is a short YouTube vid I found to show the area)
