It is Wednesday which means it is officially hump day for most of us. Only two more days until the weekend. YEAH!!! Today my wife and I took our children down to the Niagara Falls Butterfly Conservatory and we had a marvellous time. This is a truly first class facility with knowledgeable staff and beautiful surroundings. As an added bonus I was even able to grab a couple butterfly photographs that I will add to my collection of butterfly wall art decor at a later time. On the way down to the conservatory we traveled for some time along the shoreline of Lake Ontario and it got me thinking about my home province of Nova Scotia. My thoughts were flooded with memories of the countless hours that I spent playing as a child at Port Maitland beach or along the rugged shores of Cape Forchu, Nova Scotia. The purpose of today's post will be to showcase this magical seascape and the famous lighthouse which has brought countless fisherman safely home to Cape Forchu, Nova Scotia.
Here are some of my favourite lighthouse wall art prints taken at the iconic location of Cape Forchu, Nova Scotia.
This lighthouse art print was made from the parking area as you first arrive at the famous Cape Forchu lighthouse. As you can see the lighthouse is perched high ontop of a hill. Interestingly enough the name "Cape Forchu" was given to the area by Samuel de Champlain back in 1604 and it means "forked tongue of land. For more historical information on this beautiful place please refer to Cape Forchu Lightstation.
This beautiful lighthouse canvas art print showcases the very rugged and rocky coastline of Nova Scotia.
This stunning lighthouse wall art was captured during golden hour as the sun was making its descent into the ocean. In developing this fine art print I blended together several different photographs taken at different exposures using special software. This technique allows us to see into shadows without losing detail in the highlights.
This is another sunset photograph I made while visiting Cape Forchu. Unlike the other lighthouse wall art prints that I have made I was completely unprepared to make this image. The colour in the sky had quickly changed from a dull evening sky into this beautiful and stunning twilight sky,
For this lighthouse wall art print I converted the original digital file into a black and white photograph and then using Photoshop CC I selectively added colour back into the wall art print,
I love making nautical art prints! This stunning wall art print was made as the sun was setting into the horizon and a storm was gathering just south of Nova Scotia. I love the dramatic sky against this rugged landscape.
