Off to New England & Nova Scotia


I’ll shortly be departing on a 16 day photo trip to New England and Nova Scotia. The trip will begin with a leisurely 4 day drive along the Maine coast. We hope to visit areas such as Boothby Harbour, Pemaquid Point, Stonington, Prospect Harbour and Acadia National Park. We will then follow the northern Maine coast before travelling into Canada crossing into New Brunswick then entering the Province of Nova Scotia.


We expect to stay seven days in Nova Scotia and hope to explore as much of the peninsula as we can. Our first stop will be in the east as we photograph around Sydney. This will afford us the opportunity to explore the Cape Breton Highlands National Park and the wild eastern coastline of this island part of the Province. We’ll then head to Halifax to visit the central region during the day but ensuring we take every opportunity to capture the sunrise and sunsets at the famous Peggy’s Cove Lighthouse. This is the iconic location in Nova Scotia and its wild and remote location makes it one of the most recognised lighthouse on the eastern seaboard of the American Continent. From here we will continue our exploration of the Province as we head south west to photograph the coast around Weymouth and Yarmouth. This will give us the opportunity to visit the rugged coastline as well as the interior. Weather permitting and with so much wild coastline to photograph we should be in for a feast of photography.

Having completed our journey through Nova Scotia we will return to the USA through the central part of New Brunswick, crossing the border into Northern Maine. We will then cross into New Hampshire and the White Mountains enjoying the fall scenery and quaint villages before turning south back to the Maine coast.
