Peggy’s Cove, Nova Scotia.
I apologize for the image intense post coming up – narrowing down photography of Peggy’s Cove is impossible. It’s worth it, I promise.
Peggy’s Cove is like being on the moon. The austere beauty of this rocky landscape makes this one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever shot.
Of course there is the lighthouse, but if you walk about 5 minutes away from it then you find yourself completely alone with the rocks and the ocean.
The population of Peggy’s Cove is less than 100. It’s a beautiful little fishing village. It’s got one restaurant where, as you might imagine, I had the best Fish N’ Chips ever.
The rock formations were left behind by a retreating glacier. In parts of Peggy’s Cove it looks like it literally rained boulders.
There are lots of places to lie on the rocks like a sunning salamander and nap while listening to the waves.
In the evening, long exposure shots make for beautiful textures.
The town itself is lovely. It’s got one B&B, where we stayed.
Tide in at the town’s fishing wharf.
It’s got one church.
And a small maritime museum.
…And the most beautiful landscapes I’ve ever seen. My soul sings in a place like this. Give me rocks and ocean and I’m a content gal.
Yvette and I were sorry to leave, but very very happy that we made the time to see this magical spot.
