The story behind the image
In 2009, we visited Nova Scotia in Canada. The province has got its name from the first settlers that came from Europe, many of them from Scotland. The area is very similar to northern and central Europe, and so it’s no surprise that the settlers stayed here and also named their communities and towns with names from their origins. For example, you’ll find Lunenburg (named after the German city Lüneburg) and West Berlin (also from Germany), Liverpool and Bristol (from England) as well as Inverness and Dunvegan (from Scotland).
We explored the entire province, including the island of Cape Breton in the north. A truly wonderful place that reminded us – surprise, surprise – to Scotland. You’ve got gentle hills and moderate mountains, the Atlantic Ocean, warm weather in the summer and cold and rough weather in the winter.
This shot shows the beach of Warren Lake, situated within the Cape Breton Highlands National Park. A swimmer had left her clogs at the beach, and I used an extreme wide angle of 24 mm to illustrate the idea of a beach within the National Park. As you can see, the weather was just so-so, a mix of sunshine and clouds, but the shadows of the clouds where adding depth to the image.
I really like it.
