After a very lazy Labour Day weekend, we decided on a whim to jump in the car and head to my favourite beach in Port Cobourg to photograph the sunset.
For me, nothing beats a stroll on the boardwalk, taking in the view of the Breakwater Lighthouse and surrounding scenery. For the last few years, the lighthouse has been in need of a spiff up. Town council gave the go ahead for a makeover. This little paint job cost the tune of $56,500! Seems a lot don't you think?
Venus even made an appearance! During the month of September you can view Venus about 1.5 hours after sunset in the west sky. If you wait a bit longer, you will also find Saturn above and to the left of the moon. I think it was too cloudy and maybe a bit too early in the evening because we couldn't find it.
The sun rises just behind the lighthouse so I am hoping to muster up the energy to photograph it before it gets too cold. I'm not a morning person, so it actually might be easier to just stay up and head out that way before daylight!
