Wild coasts, lighthouses & quiet forests
during indian summer
After our successful Canada West photo tour , we now turn to Canada's east coast.
During indian summer, we explore the small, romantic coastal towns along the rugged east coast of Nova Scotia. The dense forests, waterfalls and lakes in the interior of the country are our subject as well. Far away from the maddening crowds of tourists, we will discover and photograph a quiet and remote piece of Canada. In Cape Breton National Park we have a good chance of seeing and photographing moose. The program is designed to give us plenty of time for photography and to discovery.
