I'm glad that you have a little longer in NS
There are not so many "stunning" view points that just ease themselves into an image, as in BC or some of the US national parks. However there is a lot of detail to be found in the rural landscapes, especially off the main highways. As I said earlier many of the scenes need a little help with the light to transpire into "great images" - normally when tied up with another appointment and unable to stop. The West side, where I used to live, does have a number of "pretty" old towns, Annapolis Royal, Port Royal, Bridge Town, Bear River with its buildings on stilts over the river being some. However most have a lot of overhead wires which is a pitty as they get in the way.
The coastline around New minus, and the lookout is good, although getting to the other side - about a 2 hour drive from Halifax maybe a little better. If you enjoy coffee, a nice Just Us coffee place is just off Junction 10 of the 101!!
South of Digby there are frequent morning fogs, and these can lead to some interesting possibilities.
My only regret is that while we lived in Nova Scotia, I either commuted and wasn't there much, or had some health challenges so could not get out and photograph as much as I would like - I always though I had next year, then we moved!
There are a couple of websites, that google will find if you search Fundy and SW Nova.
