Nothing says “PEI” more than rugged sandstone cliffs and red sand beaches. They have lighthouses too, but honestly they are tiny compared to those you find on the west coast. This one is located at Cape Bear on the south eastern coast of PEI where it has aided mariners since 1881 (the red sand beach is on the other side of the lighthouse). There was once a Marconi Wireless Telegraph station here. It was the first station to hear the SOS signal from the Titanic as she sank in 1912.
I made this image by taking 3 brackets (once exposed for the highlights, one for the mid-tones, and one for the shadows) and combining them in Photomatix.

Just stunning Anne. I tend to go to New England a lot and sometimes forget the beautiful landscape in my own country.

Hi Edith, I am planning on visiting New England starting around October this year and travelling south as the leaves change colour. Do you have any particular favourite places?
