Photographer's Note

My husband's family is from Nova Scotia so we visit every 3-4 years. This time the occasion was a wedding. We had visited Peggy's Cove after dropping family members at the airport. In the middle of the day, it is hard to get a shot of this iconic site without busloads of people. We resolved to return before we left. Our hopes of sunset pictures were dashed by a flat grey sky, so we had a stellar seafood dinner in Lunenburg and returned to the closest overnight accommodations at Indian Cove. After setting my alarm, we arrived back at Peggy's Cove well before sunrise AND any other tourists. As dawn lighted the area the iconic lighthouse stood against the last of the clouds. The resat of the day was bright and sunny.

The 350 mile/580 Km pennisula that is Nova Scotia has 4000 miles of coastline. I've often said that it is hard to take a bad picture in Nova Scotia in the Summertime. I heard that the harbor at Pugwash was still frozen in May, so I've never been there in the winter.
