Peter Island Lighthouse by David Davies

Currently unavailable for purchase

Peter Island Lighthouse is, not surprisingly, on Peter Island in the narrow and swift running Grand Passage, between Long Island and Brier Island, Nova Scotia, Canada. The original lighthouse, built in 1851 was replaced in 1909 by the present octagonal wooden structure. It became fully automated in 1984.

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.
