I've got a MVC project with a view under: Views>MyStuff>myPage.aspx

I know how to use jquery and the Controller to pass the path into the src of an img tag.

I want to load an image from a folder in the root directory (mydomain/myImages). How to I get the path to the image using Server.MapPath?

Server.MapPath("~") returns the physical path to the root of the application
Server.MapPath("/") returns the physical path to the root of the domain name (is not necessarily the same as the root of the application)
