Where was this photo taken?

At the Souris East lighthouse Sea Glass museum displayin Souris, Prince Edward Island, Canada.

Date, time of day, and weather conditions?

We arrived at the lighthouse, late afternoon on October 15, 2011, and paid the $5 to climb the lighthouse and see the museum displays. The second floor was dedicated to sea glass. It was a sunny day.

What were your feelngs or impressions when taking this photo?

I was so excited to discover the sea glass display as I have always loved sea glass - especially finding it.

What kind of camera and/or lens did you use?

I used my Olympus Stylus 1030SW, at f3.5 and 1/15 of a second, on Auto setting.

What tips or suggestions do you have for other photographers?

Keep your eyes open and take your time. If you have a scene setting like "behind glass" or "close-up/culinary" modes, then experiment with these settings. Lighting is important as well, esp natural light.

PEI Seaglass Store -100 Main Street-Souris
by: Anonymous

As you enter Souris PEI, at 100 Main Street There is a lovely Seaglass Shop devoted to mostly to Souris seaglass, seaglass jewelry and other seaglass items. It was opened in 2009.

The owner Patricia Maclean just last week was selected by the PEI Craft Council at one of 25 of the Island's best new crafts person recognized for her beautifully carded seaglass jewelry.

It's a great little shop and shouldn't be missed. Patricia is open from May to October.

Please drop by, you'll be glad that you did!
