Nova Scotia offers varying landscapes: wild ocean seaside cliffs, rolling vineyards, red mud & farmland, the roaring muddy waters of the Bay of Fundy, and the calm waters of the Northumberland Strait. Wherever you are in Nova Scotia you are not far from the water's edge, and much of the photography is influenced by the high and low tides. From small fishing villages to bustling Halifax, there's a wide variety of landscapes to photograph. From colorful Lunenburg to fortresses and historic towns and buildings, if you love architecture photography, there is plenty to keep you busy.
