One perk to winter, makes it awfully easy to catch sunsets. Out for a walk with friends at a nearby beach, we could see the waves rolling in at Lawrencetown and figured it was worth a quick stop before heading home. We were rewarded with amazing views of the surfers and a far more dramatic sunset than expected.
With a storm coming through during the night, conditions looked interesting for sunrise out at Peggy’s Cove, cloud transitioning to sun, and the swell expected to be somewhere in the 7-10 foot range. I decided to haul myself out of bed at 5:30am and try to be there to see if something would happen. Fourty-five minutes of driving, two hours of hiking, and 700 photos later, I think I can say it was worth it.
Amazing clouds hung around all day, only to disappear as I drove out for sunset. There wasn’t a lot of light once I arrived, but still some moody skies and nice crashing waves.

Undoubtedly one of the best nights of the year. My wife and I went out to Lawrencetown Beach for sunset to find not only that the ever present fog was mostly lifted, but it was warm and vibing and absolutely beautiful.
A very rare catch at Peggy’s Cove, primarily because you virtually never would be able to isolate just one subject with how popular this place is. We spend a beautiful May evening here on the rocks with family and it was well worth the trip.
One of the highlights of my first year with a camera was this trek out to Martinique Beach for sunset in late July. This is one of my favorite places in all of Nova Scotia, you’ll see photos of it here often. It is however prone to fog at least in the earlier portion of summer, and it’s often difficult to tell what you’re going to get when you arrive as the beach juts dramatically out into the ocean.
