Peggy’s Cove is undeniably Nova Scotia’s most famous landmark. Its iconic lighthouse stands like a sentinel on a barren outcrop of granite facing the cold North Atlantic Ocean. I am fortunate that Peggy’s Cove is just a 30 minute drive from my home along a very scenic road. Over the past 5 years I’ve visited the cove numerous times during all seasons. Here is a selection of my favourite images from those visits.

  1. What great pictures! We visited Nova Scotia a few years ago, but we did not get to see everything we wanted to see. So I hope I am able to make a return trip (from Oklahoma) in the future. You are a talented photographer. I knew that from your pictures of the cats. They are certainly attractive subjects, but you have a knack for capturing them at just the right moment.

  2. I visited Peggy’s Cove last fall with a Road Scholar’s Group. It was gorgeous. I especially enjoyed the warning that begins “Injury and Death has rewarded Careless Sightseers here…”
