Nova Scotia

The town of Prospect clings to one of the many fingers of rock that make up the inlets of Nova Scotia. It was here that I was particularly captivated by the play of light on the water and on the fishing stages that surround the harbor. I was also struck by how this particular stage (second photo from the left), with a For Sale sign, tells the story of the codfish industry in this area. Note that the lobsterman next door is still in business - trap fishing is sustainable by nature - but codfish populations have been virtually decimated along the Atlantic Seaboard. We have to face the reality that fish populations are declining world wide; this is the cost of our love of seafood.
