Nova Scotia is a "T" shaped peninsula that protrudes into the Atlantic Ocean forming the easternmost area of the Canadian mainland. Eastern Passage is a fishing harbor / community that has been moving toward trendy restraunts and shops. The image is of the back channel of the harbor, which is very narrow. The fishing harbors in Nova Scotia are very quaint and picturesqe. This is known as the land of the "saltwater farm" because, since no place here is more than 35 miles from the ocean, it is not unusual to pass a farm with a commercial fishing boat hauled out in the barnyard. I used a graduated density filter so as not to overexpose the clouds.

That's picturesque indeed, as you say. But I'd expect more color (how do we say in technical photo language?); I mean, the reds more red, the blues more blue, the white boats less grey.
(Sorry my broken English also).

Lovely clouds and their equally lovely reflection in the water of this narrow channel. I'm glad I don't have to turn that boat around.
