We were treated with a real surprise after shooting Covehead Light at sunset, once the sun was gone a beautiful Harvest moon made it’s way up the horizon almost directly behind the lighthouse. Quite a way to finish off a day of shooting on Prince Edward Island with the NxNW crew.
The present Covehead Harbour Lighthouse is 26.9 feet in height with a focal plane of 32.8 feet above the surrounding water and serves as a coastal light instead of a range light. The revolving bull’s-eyed Fresnel lens in the lantern room emits a white 0.5-second flash followed by an eclipse of 4.5 seconds and was reportedly relocated from Dalhousie, New Brunswick.
Thanks for stoping
