Westport Fishing Boat
During our May 2019 trip to Nova Scotia, we drove all the way down to Brier Island, the westernmost part of Nova Scotia. We spent a night there, as I was hoping to get a good photo of the lighthouse. We stayed in Westport, the only town on the island. While in town, I went out looking for other photo opportunities. I liked this red boat, which was grounded due to the low tide. The water provides a nice reflection, and the rope line gives a nice leading line. I’m always excited to find compositions like this.
Brier Island itself was a pretty quiet place. Just a couple hundred people live there, and there are only a few restaurants and hotels. It’s mainly a base for whale watching. Although it was a bit of a long drive (including two short ferry rides), I’m glad we went.
