From larger than life vistas to intimate landscapes, the tides and sand create visual art that is constantly in motion. More and more often, I focus my camera on the details in the sand, what I refer to as "sandscapes".

This premium magazine includes my favourite Sandscape images and verse inspired by my visits to our Nova Scotia beaches.

Sandscapes is available to view and/or purchase online.

Stroke of Emotions book by Sara Harley
Stroke of Emotions 
a healing journey from devastation to rejuvenation

"Sometimes I cry so hard I think the tears will never stop.
Sometimes I feel so tired I want to lay my head down and sleep forever. Sometimes I feel absolutely nothing and wonder if I will ever feel happy again."

I wrote those words last year after my husband had a major stroke. No matter who we are, we all face life challenges. No matter what crisis we face, we all struggle with a range of feelings. This book is filled with images, verse, and personal anecdotes... a story of crisis, struggle, adaptation, and healing.

Stroke of Emotions is available to view and/or purchase online.

Roots + Wings
a book of images and verse from my Roots + Wings exhibit

“In her “Roots + Wings” exhibition, Sara Harley brings together words and images to create a passionate message about the healing power of the creative process.
The words are in the form of short prose poems reflecting Sara’s turmoil of emotions following her husband’s health crisis last year. The images are beautifully crafted composite photographs that merge trees (for Strength) and birds (for Freedom), with background textures to enhance and unify the series. Each image with its accompanying text can be appreciated on its own, but taken together, the sequence forms an inspiring body of work that develops a story which is at once personal and universal.The result is a moving portrait of Sara’s journey toward emotional recovery – and hope for the rest of us facing challenges of our own."

a book of newspaper columns published in the Chronicle Herald

I wrote weekly columns for The Chronicle Herald under the by-line "In Focus". I shared my love of life, photography, and Nova Scotia. This 118 page book is a compilation of all the articles that were published.

“Sara has a writing style that engages readers with the creative process, anecdotes and human interest behind her photographs. Her columns blend technical expertise with life stories with which readers can readily relate. Sara’s columns have generated considerable reader feedback, both from experienced and novice photographers, and from those who simply enjoy a good read.”
