The perfect picture is hard to capture but this one taken at Peggy's Cove in Nova Scotia, Canada captures the beauty of the sunset lighting, the crescent moon rising into the sky and the lighthouse illuminating itself as night settles in. The current lighthouse at Peggy's Cove was built in 1915 replacing the original wooden structure and has become one of the most picturesque and popular places for tourists to see while visiting Nova Scotia, Canada.
During this sunset, the sky is aglow is soft pastel colors as the moon jumps ahead of schedule before darkness and shows off its shape over the water at St. Margarets Bay. Peggy's Cove Lighthouse was operated by lighthouse keepers but they lost their jobs in 1958 when the lighthouse became automated.... continue below the picture...

Summer brings out thousands of tourists to see the scenery and admire the beautiful coastal shores of Nova Scotia where Peggy's Cove Lighthouse stands atop the flat topped coastal shores. Still aiding vessels in their journeys around the coastline of Nova Scotia, the light atop the lighthouse was first red in color, then white, changing to green in the late 1970's and since 2007, the light was changed to red to conform with the world lighthouse standards.
Peggy's Cove Lighthouse and the coastal shores are breathtaking at sunset with the moon dancing over the calm waters as it gently breaks around the rocks.
