This couple were intent on getting as close as they safely could to the edge of the rock ledges at Peggy’s Cove, Nova Scotia, Canada, during a building Atlantic Ocean storm. The rocks are millions of years old and withstood the passage of the glaciers in the last Ice Age, about 10,000 years ago. These winds were moderate, but still enough to create heavy surf and bursting spray along the coastline. Peggy’s Cove is a little fishing village about 30 miles south of Halifax, permanent population about 50, but host to millions of visitors over the years. One of the most popular tourist destinations in Canada, with dozens of photo opportunities and spectacular changes of weather to suit anyone’s tastes.
