A dramatic sunset is captured while clouds hang low over the St Mary's River in this view taken from the St Mary's Riverside Campground in Sherbrooke, Nova Scotia. This breathtaking scenery is just one of the elements that attracts visitors to this area of Nova Scotia and to this campground. Camping is a very popular past-time in most Canadian provinces and Nova Scotia is no exception; as Canada is a country known for its vast open spaces and varied ecological regions, this sunset view shows just how unobstructed and beautiful camping can be.
Watching a sunset can be a peaceful and self-reflecting experience. Many couples like to watch sunsets together as they are often considered a romantic occurrence and have a magical element to them. Depending on the temperature that day and the clouds in the sky, a sunset can truly light up the sky with brilliant yet soft muted colours. This sunset has turned the sky shades of yellows, pinks and purples.
The St Mary's River is not only a perfect spot to watch a sunset, but it is also one of Nova Scotia's longest rivers. The Wood Turtle and the Atlantic Salmon both call the river their home and can be seen at certain times of the year from this riverside campground in Sherbrooke.
