Peggys Cove

the Iconic Lighthouse
Peggys Cove is a popular tourist destination in Nova Scotia. As it should be- it's a beautiful spot with rocks, water, fishing village and a great restaurant. Our photo club went there last weekend. The problem with living near such places is that you know that the subject has had thousands of photos  taken, many of which are better then yours. It's hard to be inspired. When I travel I have no problem taking photos of popular tourist subjects because I am so excited to be there myself.  I do enjoy the outings though and I do love Peggys cove. So I wandered around looking for a way for me to find new subjects. Here are a few of my finds. If you want to see more you can find them here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/bambe1964/sets/72157633351448129/with/8686616821/

Searching for Spring

With the worst spring ever it's been quite discouraging. Last week I made myself go out with my camera and search for signs of spring.

Thank heavens that the crocuses were up.
