Oh, Canada

You may have read my earlier posts here and here .  If so, you’ll know we just got back from a fabulous trip to Nova Scotia.  We enjoyed the seafood, the scenery, and the water.  We saw puffins, eagles, seal, grouse, pheasant, porcupine, deer, and caribou.

It’s so awesome just to watch nature in it’s climates and storms, it’s moods and sweeps…. we just love it.  We can spend time just watching it’s many facets, meeting people, and taking it all in.  Oh my, how we have evolved.

Becoming a photographer teaches one many things.  Not the least of which is juxtaposition, simplification, patterns and light.  It’s a joy to see something, capture it and make a seemingly ordinary commonplace item something extraordinary.  Not that a large lobster boat cast onshore is anything ordinary!

There is something about being on the coast.  It produces such moods and emotion.  It giveth and it take away; the sea can be peaceful or unforgiving.  Many lives are lost on the seas, caught in it’s moods.  We saw a great testament and monument to that in Lunenburg where marble pillars list the names of the lost.  It gives one pause.

Yet, on it’s good days the sea is inviting in it’s beauty and allure… a peaceful serene place. It’s no wonder we crave it and constantly go back for more.

In Lunenburg we enjoyed fabulous Adams & Knickles scallops, the seaside village, and surrounding Blue Rocks.

The evening light on Lunenburg was spectacular, but it does take a long zoom and tripod to get the shot, as it isn’t up close and personal… it’s across the way at the golf course.

When we were there the flowers were blooming and the birds chirping, storms were brewing, and sun was still hesitant to shine through.  Yet the water was flowing and the animals active.  It was a quiet and fun time to be there.
