This could be a classic postcard image — the red-and-white lighthouse shining out to sea, clinging to the top of a rocky cliff — you can picture it, right? Cape Spencer has all the right elements: lighthouse, cliff, sea. But in order to get that perfect picture I would have to be in a boat on a calm day at low tide in the evening. Instead, I captured an image that showed just what I saw, the sun climbing into the sky on a beautiful summer morning, a cool breeze off the Bay of Fundy moderating the warming temperatures. I didn’t spend a lot of time looking for the perfect photo, because I was there to go berry picking. Several hours (and a 2nd morning) later, we had collected 8 cups of raspberries, 6 cups of blueberries, and 21 cups of gooseberries. I think this photo is just fine.
