Gilbert’s Cove Lighthouse

Daily Image - 7 July 2011 - Gilbert's Cove Lighthouse

It’s almost always difficult to get a nice shot of this lively little lighthouse on upper Saint Mary’s Bay at Gilbert’s Cove, Digby County. The high, green hills of Digby Neck in the background tend to swallow up the foreground, making the lighthouse seem insignificant, but a lucky band of fog in the bay blocked out all that mass of green this morning, giving me the opportunity to shoot the lighthouse, isolated by the fog and being struck by the morning sun.
