East-Coast Travels.

My wife and I have just returned from a couple of weeks travelling around parts of Prince Edward Island and Nova Scotia. This is a truly spectacular area combining friendly people, great fish and seafood; and of course, wonderful scenery. I am often drawn to the details within a larger scene. On this trip it was the colours and textures of the fishermans’ huts in the harbours dotted all over the region that attracted my attention. The bright colours, weathered wood, and peeling paint provide a great study in texture and contrast. It was a vacation after all, so I have also posted some scenic snapshots.

The camera was rotated horizontally while on a tripod to create the sense of how it felt to enjoy a calm evening by Saint Margaret’s Bay, Nova Scotia. A warming polarizer and ND filters ensured a long enough exposure to show the effect of the camera movement.
