An especially beautiful evening at Peggy’s Cove, Nova Scotia, with a quiet Atlantic Ocean and a beautiful flaming sunset.I’ve already posted one from the same evening (“Fireball”) and I thought it would be interesting to silhouette the lighthouse against the setting sun. I waited until there were no people about,I felt it would be an intrusion on the serenity of the scene.

    This is a good one too, George!!
    Beautiful colours.

  • Thanks Stan. That was a great evening, don’t think I ever saw such an array of colours at one time. Must have been some nice atmospherics going on.
