Another in my ongoing series of photographic explorations of the pristine area of coastal Nova Scotia where I am now lucky enough to own a home and spend part of the year just wandering about and taking photos to attempt in my futile attempt to share it’s breathtaking beauty with others.

Shooting sunsets is hard. They keep changing! You think you’ve got a great shot, then the colors and shapes all change in an instant, and you have to, just have to, take another one…and another one. Continue reading
I’m coming to this post via a sort of backwards completion process. Only the reverse of that. LOL.
Backwards completion is the method of visualizing your end point or goal and then figuring out how to get there. I did the opposite to come to the insight I hope to share in this post and this video compilation of images. One step in front of the other until I realized where I was. Continue reading
We have finally returned to Nova Scotia and taken up residence in our new home on Astaak Point in Clam Bay. As in prior years, I’ve taken a lot of pictures as we revisited all our favorite places here in Abbecombec Ocean Village. I often pick a couple photos to share on Facebook and Instagram, the selections made for random reasons; either a certain image symbolizes something about the day, some event we experienced (more often than not a George photo bomb) or simply just certain images stand out as special, you-know-it-when-you-see-it, extraordinary captures of the beauty that abounds here.

I thought it’d be interesting to show the progress on the new house construction on Astaak Point in a video intercut with the highlights of our day’s explorations around the neighborhood. This is the result.
Going through my folder of video projects to clean out old versions and aborted projects, I found I’d started to make one from this day’s shoot on September 4th and never finished it.
On revisiting it, I decided to pick some different music and go ahead and generate yet another of my photographic journals of a day spent not doing a whole lot, but well spent nevertheless. Continue reading
September 24 was yet another beautiful clear sunny day with high windswept clouds splashed across an incredibly blue sky. It was low tide so we decided to take a walk along the mile long strand just below our new house on Clam Bay.
As usual I took a few pictures…
Continuing with my self inflicted chore/labour of love of choosing my top shots from each day’s shoot to make a ‘highlight reel,’ I selected these from the remaining days in October. So this would make Part 4 of the Back To The Garden series if you’re still keeping count. Continue reading
Over three very summerlike days in early October, George and I expanded the radius of our explorations from one side of the wide bay where we built our new home to the other. Continue reading
