Short explanation of the story and how it developed:

Timing is everything, so our team needed to act quickly to find the balance of daylight and dusk and warm lit indoor tone to capture the image. The cover articulates visually what makes this home so special on the rough and tumble shores of Northen Nova Scotia. Masthead colours were chosen to compliment , allowing he image to be the star.

Resources of the newsroom (money and time) available to complete the story:

It was a long day shooting the cover story. Photographer Steve Smith of VisionFire Studios captured all of the indoor shots earlier in the day and waited in cold and snow to take the photo when the time was right. All on the shoe string budget of $300 for the complete cover story.
