The sun drew me down to the harbour in the evening. It was low in the western sky, shining on the wharf and buildings to the east.
Out at the harbour entrance, the sun illuminated one of the octagonal sides of Indian Head Lighthouse.
Within half an hour, as the sun touched the horizon, the east side of the harbour glowed.
Out at the lighthouse, the light began its sentinel duty into the approaching darkness.
Birds resting on the ice, lifted silently and headed inland for the night.
I watched as the blue deepened. Out of the south, a jet, probably out of Halifax, followed its great circle path as it rose above the tranquility.
What did the passengers see of this scene?
An occasional passing car broke the chilled silence as the temperature dropped. The glow was gone and the sky darkened across to the western horizon. Night had fallen.
The final shot is marvelous!
When the sun goes low, the quality of shots gets higher.
Your beautiful island was unknown to me before your blog illuminated it for me. And those pictures are wonderful, Marie. Thank you. :-)
Fantastic cloud in the last photo! Lighthouses are majestic! Looks a bit cold yet but so lovely and quiet. Have a wonderful week!!
Too beautiful Marie, the pastel colours in these images is wonderful ✨
Hello, I just love that cute lighthouse. Beautiful views and a pretty sunset.
Happy Monday, enjoy your day! Wishing you a great new week ahead!
These are beautiful shots!
Lovely shot and it does look so peaceful. Cheers Diane
Wow, wow and wow.
Absolutely gorgeous images. I love the lighthouse. You are such a good story teller, Marie, it's a nice talent to have.
Love, love, love that first photo of the lighthouse and the contrail also.
Thanks for sharing your world.
I really like lighthouses. I lived in Michigan most of my life. Michigan supposedly has more lighthouses than any other state. I never once saw one the whole time I lived there. I grew up in the city and never had much of a chance to venture out farther though. Now, I make sure I travel around a bit and see my surroundings.
That is a magical place.
Such a beautiful place to live. You are so lucky.
I really like the last photo, you were there at just the right time of evening.
You make me want to visit this island again.
that's such a pretty lighthouse!! and the light you captured in these images is amazing!!!
Just magical moments. :)
Love that sunset glow on everything.
What beauty and atmosphere! I often wonder, like you did, how much a jet passenger can see of the ground. It's kind of a surreal feeling, being on the ground yet able to imagine being in the plane too.
