I have had a long-time love of wild horses, the arts, foreign cultures, history, poetry, and photography.
I have loved Sable Island since I was a little girl at the tender age of 7. Having spent a summer there in the 70’s and a winter there in the 80’s. I have many memories of an extremely isolated, wildly unpredictable life of unusual adventures.
A recent visit in 2022 allowed me to reconnect with that sense of wandering, of adventure and solitude that can bring joy to our hearts. This image captures one of these moments. Times have changed, the Island has changed, but one thing that has not changed is that Sable Island still returns the gift of a deep sense of calm and beauty that one can only find when left to explore the untamed, the unpredictable Island of sand in the North of the Atlantic Ocean.
