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 fishermen’s village with the same name, it’s one of the most photographed landmark in the Maritimes 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.

It was a beautiful day, and earlier I was lucky again : Like never before, right at the base of the lighthouse a musician lady was playing the accordion (We visited Peggy’s Cove many times, but never had seen her before). Many people were taking photos of the scene, and I’m not sure if it was for her music or for posing, but her accordion case placed strategically close by, got quite a few coins in it.

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