14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Other-worldly coast of Nova Scotia

The seashore near the Nova Scotia village of Peggy's Cove is comprised of wave-washed boulders that are constantly pounded by the north Atlantic, which over the course of millions of years created the moonscape visitors see today. It is even more eerie as the morning fog lifts, revealing algae covered ponds.
