Photographer's Note

A classic view of this famous cove located 43 kilometres from Halifax. The cove typifies in many way the character of the multitude of small fishing villages located in Nova Scotia and particularly on the Chebucto Peninsula.

The village was founded in 1811 when a land grant was issued by the province to six families of German descent. These first settlers relied upon fishing as their main occupation, but carried on some farming where the soil was fertile. This cove, with its peculiar granite outcroppings and outstanding lighthouse, draws artists, photographers, and tourists from all over the world.
