A Lighthouse at Night (Peggy's Cove, Nova Scotia)

Digital original
Peggy's Cove has a number of advantages, photographically. It is close enough to Halifax that is can be considered "near by", and yet is far enough away from the city that much of the night sky around it is black, which is a must for night photography. The above photograph was made during twilight, when the light in the sky was still bright enough to balance against the street light illuminating the side of the lighthouse.

Much later in the evening, looking back towards Halifax, the city's glow can be seen spreading along the rock-line; the sky above though is more than dark enough to see the rotational arc of the planet.
