Default Peggy's Cove

Standing on the shores of Peggy's Cove, Nova Scotia, you got a real sense of how powerful nature can be. Watching the waves crash against the rocks was a spetacular site. These pictures don't even come close to doing it justice.

Thanks for showing a bit of "home". It is probably one of the most photographed spots in Nova Scotia.

As to the power of nature, unfortunately, people wanting a closer look have been swept off the rocks. The current/undertow makes it very difficult to get back to shore.

A very nice series. I can almost feel the sea spray, and hear the crashing waves. You've really captured the feeling of a cold, cloudy day at the ocean. I'd be willing to trade you your cold stormy weather for our nearing 100F temperatures today and tomorrow.

Wonderful work, especially nr 2 and 3.
Nr2 - the way your eye is drawn to the horizon, looking for what she's seeing
Nr3 - the structure from the rocks.

and if I have to look for something negative, nr3 looks a little (extremely small) tilted.

thanks for posting these

Ronny

Yes, nice capture. I can feel the power.
I've never been there but, have been to similar places and know first hand just how powerful the sea can be.

Really nice photos. My wife and I spent a very wet and rainy week in Nova Scotia back in 2009, and despite the weather we loved it. We never got to Peggy's Cove, but we spent many hours wandering around spectacular rocky shorelines. We want to go back some time and see more of Nova Scotia -- a week wasn't long enough.

Everyone should see Nova Scotia before they die. And if you make it that far, make sure you do the Cabot Trail on Cape Bretton Island on the north end of Nova Scotia. Luckily, I have a friend and former colleague who is a native of Halifax, giving me a perfect place to stay.

I really like #1 the best from this very good and interesting series. It really gives you an understanding of the scale involved here ... those crashing waves must be nearly 50 feet high (15m) !

Very nice series - subtle tones, fine composition, and great captures of the power and the mood. Thanks for sharing!
