The Peggy's Cove Lighthouse has lit the coastline from St. Margaret's Bay in Nova Scotia, Canada since 1868, but the lighthouse seen today was built in 1915 which replaced the first wooden lighthouse. This lighthouse was only moved 50 feet west from the original location where the wooden lighthouse stood and has become one of the most popular tourist attractions for visitors to Nova Scotia.
The best time of day to capture a picture of the Peggy's Cove Lighthouse is at sunset when the sky becomes a mixture of soothing colors. This particular day was picturesque as the sunset lighting blanketed the sky, the moon had risen becoming a bright fixture amongst the hues and the water remained calm.
... lighthouse keepers were banished in 1958 but the automated light from the top of the octagonal tower on the lighthouse still aids vessels around the rocky coastline near St. Margaret's Bay. Sitting atop the smooth granite boulders, Peggy's Cove Lighthouse and the coastal shores are a photographer's paradise, especially during the sunset hours.
