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.
Fay Stout02-Jul-2012 20:29
Tony... I just wanted to thank you for your touching comment on my "I Am a Nurse" gallery. It means so much to me. Nursing was always a big part of my life and a part of who I am.

Your images of Cape Breton are simply incredible! What a wonderful place to live. So much unspoiled beauty. How I would like to explore that area sometime. The best part of Pbase is seeing bits and pieces of this world through another person's eyes and I will definitely be perusing your galleries further. What a refreshing break from the Texas heat!

With many thanks...

Terry J. Graham26-Mar-2012 18:40
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.

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

Great photos.

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.

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.
Guest 08-Mar-2007 08:02
Your photos have left an impression on me and that's a rare thing.

You have a great web site!!!
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
Guest 12-Mar-2006 23:14
Great galleries. I really enjoyed the time I spent browsing your pics.

Merry Christmas and a very happy New Year from your friends in Germany. We love your Christmas pics. You are multilingual now, so we can write our comments in German now!!?? All the very best. Falk and Baerbel
Marilyn Sessa 27-Dec-2005 23:56
My friend Michelle gave me your site to view. Sorry we missed seeing you in N.Y. few yrs ago but nothing beats C.B. air. Born a Cape Bretoner and will always remember my roots. Hopeful to get down next yr- but your gorgeous photos are breathtaking. Hopefully we will get down next year. Just a great job and thanks so much for the memories.
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 22:59
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.

We purchased a smallish plot of land in soldiers Cove a couple of years ago, just to "let be", whilst over there we stayed on the Isle Madame, your picture Sand and surf brough back such great memories of Pondville Beach we have just booked our flights back with Canadian Affair.

Great photos. A friend told me about this site and I really enjoy the collection you have.
Spent time on the Trail and hope to do so again.
Barry 28-Mar-2005 16:59
Hello Tony,

The scenery in your photos is breath taking! I am a life long resident of Eastern Ontario and have only been in Nove Scotia but twice for visits with my wife's sister & her family at Head of Chezzetcook near Dartmouth. The last time we were there, we drove the Cabot Trail from west to east and thoroughly enjoyed the sights. On our way out of Cape Breton, we drove along the Bras'Dor Lakes shores & stopped at Rita's Tea Room at Big Pond.

Having viewed your photo essay, I would love to tour Cape Breton more completely & take in more of the sights. I also intend to tour the Atlantic Provinces, taking in as much as I can in the time I would be able to spend doing so.

Once again, well done! Seldom have I seen such awe inspiring pics of a specific area of our grand country.

Angela Macdonald 03-Mar-2005 23:13

I love your pictures. I wanted to tell you how much I love the picture of Tuffles Cove Grand Mira North. This is where I grew up and I still live out there just down the road. This is a picture of my parents shore I wanted to tell you who owns the boats. The sail boat is owned by Vincent MacLellan, 1st boat is owned by Kevin and Gail Morrison, 2nd is owned by Stewart and Debra Macdonald and the last one is my parents Joseph and Dorothy MacLellan Tuffles Cove.

Jack, I must say that I do enjoy reading the many positive comments from the visitors to my galleries. However I am very touched by your comment and that I inspired you. The expression of your feelings about not only the pictures but of your desire to come to Cape Breton is really something. Yes, the people here are extremely friendly and I trust you will not be disappointed.

Welcome and all the best to you!

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.
Peter Rackham30-Jan-2005 16:54
Hello, Tony,

Thanks so much for the images of The Big Fiddle. I had no idea such a neat icon had been constructed in Sydney. It is certainly appropriate, isn't it? I hope to make the journey from Halifax next summer to see it. -- Peter
Laurence 16-Jan-2005 18:16

Thank you for the fantastic photographs of Cape Breton. I am a misplaced Cape Bretoner living in London, England for the last 10 years. There are others here oddly enough. I stop by your gallery periodically for a break and the effect is always the same - emotional.

B.Banse 31-Dec-2004 17:51
Dear Tony, a happy New Year to you from the Banses in Germany. I still enjoy your wonderful photos and gave the link to all of my friends, even to a very famous fotographer from Hollywood. I look at your page nearly every day, I am always so curious if there is something new. Keep up the good work, all the very best to you for the coming year. B.Banse
Michele Rodgers11-Dec-2004 03:27
Thank you for visiting my galleries and the great compliments you have made. I feel you must be boosting tourism to Cape Breton all on your own. The place is beautiful but you have captured them in a way that just makes a person want to jump in the car and go. I will pass your gallery address along to some of my friends. I am sure they will be impressed as well.

I see you have a 2100UZ. It does take great photos. When I was first buying a digital camera I tried to get one but there were none left on the market. Too bad.

Again ... great galleries.

Kathy Fennell 02-Dec-2004 21:36
I have been living 'out west; for over 20 years and i just came across you beautiful pictures. Thank you for making a somtimes homesick Cape breton girl happy.
Mansour Mouasher22-Nov-2004 12:09
It is always a pleasure to visit your galleries. Great artistic work.
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.

Tony, You lucky devil! You actually live in this heavenly place?! I loved the visit. Hope to get there one of these days. Thanks from Montreal.
Thersa Marie 22-Oct-2004 22:55
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!
Ben Britten 30-Aug-2004 19:41
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.
Doddy Keel 13-Aug-2004 23:34

Tony, love your photos, they remind me of a recent vacation. Are they for sale?

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
