Peggy’s Cove Lighthouse – One of the top attractions in Nova Scotia, Canada

Peggy’s Cove Lighthouse is almost a symbol of Nova Scotia. Situated in the historic fisherman’s village with the same name, it’s one of the most photographed landmark in the Maritime Canada.

Wandering on the rocky Atlantic shore of the village, it got quite late, but I wanted to take this sunset shot. Unfortunately, by the time I climbed a rock nearby, the sun disappeared and I was quite sure I missed it.
My husband encouraged me to wait and see what happens – he was right 🙂 Suddenly the last rays of light appeared from behind the horizon spraying a fire-red color on the sky – what a great good luck!

I didn’t have the tripod (I almost never use it), so I tried to fix my legs as hard as I could on the ground and got the shot. * I like the fact that I captured the man standing nearby the lighthouse – it shows so nicely the scale of the structure. I can call this “Minimalism” in landscape photography using the “Rule of Thirds

Peggy’s Cove lighthouse is definitely a popular place, not only for its beauty, but also for its position on top of those big boulders entering deeply into the ocean.
