Cape Breton Photo of the Week: Irish Vale

Irish Vale, Cape Breton

A mass of ice is gathered in a large pile along the shore in Irish Vale. Driving along the old Highway 4, it looks like most of the Bras d’Or Lake is frozen over, some parts with large broken chunks of ice.

Cape Breton Island is a small island on the northeast tip of Nova Scotia, Canada. No matter where you are on this picturesque island, no matter where you look, one will find a picture perfect occasion to capture a slice of Nova Scotia’s masterpiece.
So every Friday, on this page you’ll find a new photo of that special little piece of Cape Breton Island. If you have a photo you would like to share with the world, please send it to
