A Boat for Dad – Nova Scotia

Fishing boat in Nova Scotia, Canada

Part 3 in my series of maritime fishing vessels comes from Nova Scotia. We’re back to some more sea worthy looking boats and I think this first one is a real “goodie” for my Dad. Enjoy! As always, you can click the images to view larger versions. Tomorrow will be the final post in the […]

White out

Indian Cove, Nova Scotia

I think I am addicted to colour. When I browse through my portfolio it stands out. All of my images have bright colours. Many years ago I used to roll my own film and make black and white images in my home-made darkroom. They had to be extremely dark always including areas of total blackness. […]

Peggy’s Cove, Nova Scotia – Is it really all that?

Peggy's Cove, Nova Scotia

Today’s photo comes from the infamous Peggy’s Cove in Nova Scotia. Coming from a fishing family on the west coast, I have always wanted to go to Peggy’s Cove. I’m not sure why, it’s just the place everyone talks about. But now that I have been there I cannot help but wonder: Why Peggy’s Cove? […]

Baddeck, Nova Scotia

Baddeck Lighthouse

Nova Scotia has the tiniest little lighthouses! I’m not sure why, there is certainly some rugged shore here. Maybe it is just the age of them and that’s how they made them then. So cute! I made this image from the small town of Baddeck, Nova Scotia, on a day with threatening clouds which added […]

More from the Keltic Lodge

Keltic Lodge

Today I have two more images of the Keltic Lodge. After last week’s post, I had a comment on the blog from the Keltic Lodge itself, what a nice surprise. They let me know that the building I had photographed was the Ceilidh (pronounced Kay_Lee) Hall. A Ceilidh is a traditional Gaelic social gathering which […]

Ingonish Beach, Nova Scotia

Ingonish Beach

Ingonish Beach in the Cape Breton Highlands is covered with the most beautiful round pink stones. We had lunch at a beachside grill and spent hours searching for our favourite stone to bring home as a souvenir. It had to be not too big – just big enough to fit in the palm of my […]

Green Cove Waves, Cape Breton

Green Cove Wave #2

I just cannot get enough of the waves and rocky shores in Atlantic Canada. At Green Cove in Cape Breton, I stood on top of one of the highland cliffs and looked down to the boulders below. I made these images using my polarizing filter and exposing for half a second to capture the movement […]

Keltic Lodge, Ingonish

Ingonish is one of the larger villages in Cape Breton Highlands National Park. Here the highland hills tower over the Atlantic Ocean and the beaches are covered with perfect round red stones. A stately resort named Keltic Lodge sits atop one of the cliffs. This photo shows an outbuilding of the lodge, not the main […]

These are not puffins!

Driving into Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, I couldn’t help but notice the signs for boat tours to see the puffins. I immediately dreamed of having photos of clown like puffins in my portfolio, close-ups, maybe with some mackerel in their beaks. Well, I did get a couple of puffin photos, but they are more like […]

Shakedown on the way to the Cabot Trail

Cabot Trail

Leaving Prince Edward Island, we travelled along the Northumberland Shore, the northern shore of Nova Scotia, where there are many red sand beached just like PEI. We decided to get off the highway, take the scenic route, and stay at a campsite on the beach. Unfortunately that turned out to be a mistake. Nova Scotia […]
