Peggy's Point Lighthouse by David Davies

Currently unavailable for purchase

Available to buy on…

The lighthouse is located on a granite outcrop at the entrance to St. Margaret’s Bay, Nova Scotia, Canada, near the picturesque village of Peggy’s Cove. The first lighthouse, a wooden building, was built in 1868. Very near here, Swissair Flight 111 crashed in 1998, with the loss of 229 crew and passengers

Pentax Optio S.

I’ve been an amateur photographer for as long as I can remember, which at my age is about a couple of weeks! I’ve owned film cameras from Zeiss, Scheider, Leica, Nikon and Olympus, as well as digital cameras from Pentax and Canon, and still have several, if I can ever find them. I currently use a Sony NEX-5N with an 18-55mm zoom lens, and after a year of ownership am still learning all the functions.

    David, this is a great photo…I have been there once and it was memorable…I have a photo of myself sitting on a rock with the lighthouse as a background…Is it still a post office inside???

  • Thank you, I’m glad you like it. Canada Post closed the post office in 2009 because, they claimed, the mold growth in the lighthouse was a danger to customers. Take care.
