The story behind the image

In 2009, we visited Nova Scotia in Canada. About 40 km south-west of Halifax you will find Peggy’s Cove, a beautiful village featuring one of the iconic lighthouses of Canada, Peggy’s Point Lighthouse. The village offers plenty of awesome photo opportunities, too. Hence, the village drowns in tourists every day in summer, and it’s difficult to capture the sweet spots without another person being present in the frame.

The village offers two parking lots – one next the the Nova Scotia Visitor Center, one next to the lighthouse. We recommend to use the one at the Visitor Center and take the short walk up to the lighthouse which will not only be beautiful but also reduce the traffic in the tiny village.
