Photographer's Note

... aka "Why it is there..." Light info on this link.

"In 1868 it was decided to erect a light to mark the eastern entrance to St. Margaret's Bay. While best known as "the Peggys Cove Lighthouse", it was and remains officially known as the Peggys Point Lighthouse. Its purpose is to mark the point, not the cove. The cove has its own small light on the government wharf.
The first lighthouse was a wooden tower, built atop a keeper's dwelling at the point. It was a red light and used a catoptric reflector (a round silver-plated mirror) to magnify the kerosene oil lamp. ""




I'm grateful for the small squall that drove off
the tourists and allowed me to get an unpolluted shot.

The light breaking thru lasted but a few moments.

The weather is a big variant here, providing for different moods.




PS Did a PP with newer software that allows very fine rotation adjustment... so the horizon is now flat...

Btw. I live close to the also still functioning 1758 Sambro Light!
Shot dedicated to Jj who first brought me to Peggys Cove.
