The Atlantic Ocean brews some wild storms along the coast of Nova Scotia, Canada, and the small fishing villages usually take the brunt. My favourite place for storm watching is at Peggy's Cove, a world-famous tourist destination along the south shore of the province. The lighthouse is one of the iconic scenes of Canada, and trying to get some interesting shots in the midst of a gale of wind and gusts of rain can be a bit of a problem. The sheer granite rocks plunge down to the sea and take the brunt of the wind driven surf that comes all the way from Africa before crashing on these shores.
...A little about me:
I'm Canadian, born and raised in Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia,with a long career in radar,communications,and computers.Retired at 74. Scion of a Grand Banks schooner captain and a merchant mariner,I love the ocean. I started using 35mm.color in 1950.Favourite camera was an Exakta Varex.Switched to digital around 1998. My favourite themes are the sea, oceans, coastal, villages, water, lakes, mountains, wildlife, sky, clouds, flowers, forests, the National Parks such as Cape Breton Highlands, Waterton, Banff, Jasper, Yoho, Glacier, Mt. Robson, Kootenay, Strathcona, historic sites, Nova Scotia, nature, scenery, landscapes, seascapes, birds and many more. I've written magazine illustrating them with my own photos. I love photographing whatever appeals to me or happens to catch my eye. Almost all of my images are of Canada, though I probably specialize more on the Atlantic and Pacific Coasts and the western mountains. But you'll find an assortment from the whole country, including some from several years in the Arctic and sub-Arctic regions back in the 1950's and 60's. I hope some of you will get some enjoyment from my efforts. Constructive comments and suggestions are always welcome.
I am trying to build an email list so I can let folks know when I have posted new material. If you would like to participate, drop me a note at email@example.com
I’d love to hear from you.
