The Peggy’s Cove Barrens: Rock, Life, Sea and Sky: A portrait in photographs


Perched on the edge of the North Atlantic Ocean where the sea is ever-present, the Peggy’s Cove Preservation Area includes a thousand acres of rugged shoreline, salt marshes, small lakes and granite boulders. In its centre is the iconic fishing village of Peggy’s Cove and its famous lighthouse. The weather can be changeable and the winds fierce, but the landscape has raw beauty in every season.

In this collection of 100 evocative photographs, Kent Martin reflects the seasons and the range of natural history on display. His pictures include the expansive, rocky landscape and ever-changing skies, but also the smaller world of mosses, flowers, birds and mammals. Together they reveal a richness of natural diversity. Nova Scotia is blessed with extensive areas of barrens and these photographs underscore the importance of preserving this unique ecosystem.
