Day 136- She Saw, He Saw- By the Seashore

Perhaps one of the most photographed, and therefore most iconic, scenes representing the province of Nova Scotia is the lighthouse at Peggy's Cove. Peggy's Cove is a very small village with less than 50 regular occupants, but thousands of visitors pour in every year to see the lighthouse and watch as the strong tides send impressive waves crashing ashore.

With Hask's father still in town, we took him to see the lighthouse first-hand. It was a beautiful sunny day with a healthy breeze blowing in from the water. We explored the huge slabs of granite that make up the landscape near the lighthouse and decided to be uber tourists by taking plenty of shots of the lighthouse. Although we chose to shoot the same subject, our personal styles reveal themselves in our composition.

Hask couldn't resist this view of the lighthouse against the fluffy white clouds.

Hask bonus shot. Having never experimented with panoramic photos before, this was a great setting to give it a try.

Although Peggy's Cove is incrediby scenic, it can also have its dangers for careless visitors. Dro photographed this plaque on the side of the lighthouse. It is easier to read when enlarged.

Dro bonus shot. The lighthouse may overlook the sea, but from this angle it appears to be the only thing between earth and sky.
