Peggy's Cove, Nova Scotia

Peggy's Cove, a small fishing village on the south coast near Halifax, is a favored location for tourists and, especially, photographers. A quaint fishing village, a picturesque lighthouse, and an ocean-smoothed granite shoreline seem to embody all that is fabled about the Cabot Trail.

The lighthouse is the biggest draw, so I was lucky to be able to get a shot without tourists.

Of course, that didn't mean I couldn't be in a shot.

A young piper wearing the Nova Scotia tartan was busking among the boulders.
