A photographic exploration of Nova Scotia’s diverse coastlines from the celebrated Canadian photographer.
For most people, the idea of submerging themselves voluntarily in the half-frozen Atlantic Ocean sounds more like torture than fun. But for photographer and surfer Adam Cornick, it’s all part of experiencing everything coastal life in Nova Scotia has to offer.
From the moment the UK native dipped his toe into the waters off “Canada’s Ocean Playground,” Cornick has dedicated himself to capturing the beauty and diversity of Nova Scotia’s stunning coastlines. Cornick’s sweeping wide-angle images showcase not just his love of the ocean, but his excitement about the beauty in every pounding wave, every polished granite boulder, every expanse of sandy beach, every ragged cliff.
With 100 full-colour images and insider tips on the must-see spots and hidden gems in each coastal region,Coastal Nova Scotia: A Photographic Tourtakes readers on a round-the-province visual trip to places many have never seen—and gives us compelling reasons to add a few new locations to our own bucket lists.
Adam Cornick is a freelance photographer from Cornwall, UK. In 2008, in search of a fresh start, he and his Canadian girlfriend (now wife), Rebecca, put a finger on a map and took a leap of faith that landed them in Halifax. He is now thrilled to have the raw North Atlantic surf—and endless inspiration for his photography—at his doorstep.
