A very "large" comment here, Tony. A great big "Thank You" for your lovely work for us at the Cape Breton Exhibition featuring the RCMP Musical Ride. Your hard work and insistence on the correct stance paid off with your excellent photos. Bravo - from the Kiwanis Ceilidh Golden K.

First of all Tony thank you for visiting my little corner of pBase, I certainly appreciate it. Secondly I wish I had of had more time in Nova Scotia when I was there last year. I only saw the southern half of it. I will return to see the northern half soon. The Maritimes are so much different than what I am used to seeing here on the prairies, just makes you realize how much Canada has to offer.

Well done Tony, I really enjoyed your images, I go to all Canadian photographers and view what this great land has to offer.

Heather, it was a pleasure to meet you and Alex and thank-you for taking the time to view my photos. I really enjoyed the Hopewell Rocks; having experienced the area with the tide in and when it completely retreated. The Bay of Fundy certainly is a wonder of nature!

Enjoy the photos and your travels and who knows, our paths may cross again.

Take care! Tony

Tony the pictures are really nice. They are all my favorites.

No one in Cape Breton can escape its beauty. It’s everywhere, however thru your lens, I am seeing parts of Cape Breton I never saw before. You are a great ambassador of our island.
Guest 05-Jul-2009 23:53
As a Cape Bretoner now living in Toronto for many years,looking at your photos brings a tear to my eye and makes me miss home just a little bit more. Your photos are splendid. For those who are from cape Breton and those who have visited I'm sure we can all agree that we come from a beautiful Island.
The scenery the warmth from family, friends and stranger make me proud to say I ma from Cape Breton.

Thank You for the memories and your appreciation of my home.
Take a Bow
Job well done.

Afew years ago, I retired and took a trip up A1A in the states from Key West to Va. Afew months later I decieded to finish this trip and ended up in CB I have ddone all the trails and was overwelmed by the beauty, and the people of Canada. I have been up there 3 times since each trip 30 days. There is so much to see and do. Your PICS capture what I felt and saw.I always tell people about, the trip and the people I met. I can tell from your PICS how much you enjoy what you do. Thank You

I have worked with you on many policing issues and value your expert knowledge on Policing issues in N.S. but this site amazes me on your photograpy expertise. This just fortifies my opinion of your great talents.
Great job Tony.

Hi Tony,

You likely won't remember me, but you used to play softball with my father John Lewis. Neither of us knew you were a photograher. I likely would never know except for a blog that was on the cape breton post website. Your work is beautiful.
Jennifer Lewis 02-Jul-2008 12:33
Hey Tony,

You likely don't remember me, but you played soft ball with my father - John Lewis. Don't think either one of us knew you were a photographer too. I likely never would have known except for a blog on the CB post website. Your work is beautiful.
Phyllis 14-Sep-2006 03:42
Love your pics!!!
Darlene 12-Jun-2006 16:44
Your pictures bring me back home, you have a rare talent for capturing the essence of what is Cape Breton, the changes, the variety, the rare gift that is home for so many of us, who live somewhere else. Thank you

Hi Tony, thanks for the comments, always appreciated. Your galleries are amazing, very nice scenic pictures! Thanks again - Dana MacDonald
Barbara 29-Oct-2005 22:38
MY daughter sent me your web site. I am from Sydney CB. When I open it, the flood of menories that rush through me was so painfull & yet brought so much Joy to see HOME again. I must say that the tears flowed in this house. Thank you for you & your talent to make us "CAPERS" never forget what we have to go home to. Now we will always know where are Roots are & Home is a liitle closer with all the effort you put into these works of CBI beauty. Barbara

Hi Tony,

just wanted to invite you to my new PBase listing:

Yours Falk
Bev 16-Aug-2005 22:58
We have never visited CBI but are considering moving there when I retire in two years. I was searching for a picture book to show us what it "really" looks like, because, as I said to my husband, "it can't ALL be that beautiful". You have proven me wrong. The photos are exquisite, thank you so much for sharing your gift. I will visit this site again and again until I actually get there.
Jack 01-Feb-2005 17:14
Tony, I am not an expert in the field however I must say your artistic nature has produced many masterpieces. I am astounded as to the feeling and emotion that flows from these pictures. I am from the northern areas of Michigan originally and have thought of returning many times. Your pictures of Cape Breton Island and the natural rugged beauty of the area has actually prompted me to buy land on Cape Breton. I sent the final payment out yesterday. Being a Michigonian or Michigander as some call us. I grew up on the shores of Lake Michigan. I am used to seeing lots of water and pine trees. So you even made me feel at home and peaceful. I hope to build this year or the next. I hope the people are as friendly as the land is beautiful. And to you sir, please keep up the great work. By reading the other posts, you have many fans.
Guest 12-Nov-2004 12:35
Thanks Tony for your compliments you left in my gallery. I've passed through the Cape Breton area many times coming to and leaving from home. Now that I'm here in the southernmost city in the US, my chances of getting to see Cape Breton have been greatly reduced. Lucky for me and everyone else your pictures bring memories to life. Thanks for sharing a true artistic talent.

Awesome Photo's, I'm sure I'll be here to view again. I'm passing this site on to friends and family away from Cape Breton so they too can enjoy the Beauty you captured and shared with us all. Keep up the good work.
Tony Dalton02-Oct-2004 19:53
Dave, I thank you and the others that have commented on these photos. We have a beautiful and historical Island and this fact is becoming more well known. I must say we experienced some nice visits by the Queen Mary 2; great weather. I spoke with a number of passengers and they expressed their pleasure with the hospitality of the people. Nice to hear. Take care!
Dave Ervin 30-Sep-2004 02:26
Tony--You have a realy amazing Talent and I'm glad that you are sharing it (and Cape Bretons beauty) with the world--Dave
Sam Peeples 24-Sep-2004 14:41
Excellent pictures. Thanks for sharing them with us.
Tony Dalton22-Sep-2004 02:30
Stacey, You may know more about this than I do. When I took this photo I remember the comment by the announcer that the difference between a Scottish Milling Frolic and an Acadian Milling Frolic is that the Acadians remain standing throughout their frolic while the Scots remain seated. Other than that I suggest the language is different yet the actions with the cloth looks very similar. I see your email address here and I may be able to assist you with a contact person.

stacey 21-Sep-2004 23:32
Hi Tony,
I'm doing a thesis on Scottish Gaelic milling frolics on Cape Breton Island and I was wondering if you know anything about them in Acadian communities or could direct me to someone who might be able to help me. Your photo was the first I have seen of an Acadian milling. Stacey
Marisa Livet04-Sep-2004 08:32
What a nice place cape Breton must be!
Thank you, Tony, to make us discover such enchanting landscapes.
I’m so glad to bookmark your galleries now.
Keep on with your good work!

Beautiful pics of C.B., made me lonesome to see Piorierville wharf and the barrachois. Practically grew up on the wharf in summer and speared eels on the ice of what we called the barrachois. Thanks to Raylene too for sharing. Keep up the good work.
B.Banse 26-Aug-2004 17:41
Really great photos. I come from Germany and my son and I adore Cape Breton. Even on our homepage we show a lot of photos from there. But your photos are more than special, they are art and show all your admiration for your country. If you are interested look at best wishes ,Baerbel from Germany.
Amanda 21-Aug-2004 17:23
Hi Tony. That picture was great of my puppy. Could you please e-mail the picture of her sitting all by herself? I would really like to have that one. Thanks keep up the good pictures.

Terry 27-Jul-2004 18:11
Great photos. My wife and I just returned from 2 weeks in early June seeing Cape Breton, Cabot Trail, Halifax and all over Prince Edward Island. It is a beautiful place to see and travel. One of our best vacations. We can't wait to go back. Thank you for sharing your photos.
Nancy 11-Jul-2004 15:23
