Light leads the way in West Mabou

West Mabou Provincial Park, Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia

The meaning of Mabou:

Mi’kmaq: Mȧbu or Malabo, from Malabokek, meaning “place where two rivers meet” (Mabou and Southwest Mabou rivers). It is also thought to mean shining or sparkling waters.

Gaidhlig: An Drochaid meaning “The Bridge”

These photographs were made one chilly October evening in West Mabou Beach. Over the course of 45 minutes the light changed in what seemed to be a thousand different ways. Strolling up and down the beach with my family I tried to capture this magical light and moment. It’s easy to see why Mabou is a place photographer Robert Frank calls home.
