Welcome to the culture and natural world of Nova Scotia and Canada.

No birds or animals are harassed or baited in the taking of photographs nor do I flush or entice a raptor or any bird with bait or sound to obtain a flight photo. Wildflowers and orchids are never altered or replanted. All photos are natural, but can be edited for colour or resolution. Photographs of animals taken in wildlife parks are not nature photographs so are stored in a folder specific to wildlife parks and are displayed for interest only.

I never reveal the locations of threatened or endangered birds, nest locations of any species of bird or animal, or locations of rare plants.

I respect the existence of all sentient species, domestic or wild, and will not cause harm or wish harm to any.

The search engine at the left will save time if your looking for a specific vision or you can just browse.

I'm a retired federal administrator who loves to walk about in the wilderness and take photographs along the way. I live in the coastal Nova Scotia community of Portuguese Cove so most of my photographs are of Nova Scotia's nature and culture. Enjoy your visit to my website.
