I can’t remember when the last time I went to Peggy’s Cove, so on our last free weekend it was a perfect opportunity for us to go. I was a little nervous about Molly and her clumsiness around the rocks, which would end the excursion very quickly. As the lighthouse comes into view, I see the winds are blowing and the place is packed with people, not a great situation to make some family photos. If I had some more of my gear, this would not have been a big issue, but kid bags trumps photo gear so I had to make due with what I had.
I was actually surprised at how well Molly navigated the giant rocks and how much fun she had. I was surprised at her reaction when I let her listen to the sound of the ocean inside of a shell. I was surprised how all she could talk about was the squishy lobster toy inside the toy and nothing else. However, I was not surprised I was able to get this shot. For a simple shot it was harder than it looks. I had to flex every muscle I had to be able to get low enough and also be stable to frame this shot how I wanted. Then I waited for Molly. Sweat starting to build up, muscles starting to go wobbly, then everything falls into place. Snap, snap, snap, snap! I got what I was looking for.
