red & blue

Red & Blue

a couple of fishing boats moored in trout river, a quaint fishing village on the west coast of newfoundland. on this day, i met a fisherman who explained to me that lobster season was at an end and that they were now preparing for the halibut one.

fargo

Fargo

i am not a huge car buff, but i do appreciate, as the saying goes… this old fargo was just parked on a gravel lot in norris point, nl. unfortunately, i could find no one to talk to about it. the little bit of research i did indicates that the fargo brand initially started out as the fargo motor car company of chicago from 1913 – 1922. by 1928, the chrysler corporation had purchased it and started the fargo motor company. fargo trucks were basically dodge trucks and were sold outside the usa. the name lasted until 1972 in canada and slightly longer in other parts of the world.

anyone know how old this truck might be? model? trivia: apparently they still exist in turkey, without any connection to the chrysler corporation.

A Pair Of Reds

a pair of red adirondack chairs on the grounds of lobster cove head lighthouse, looking onto woody cove (water at the foreground) and the town of rocky harbour across the way. similar red chairs popped up here and there throughout my  travels in and around gros morne national park.

a piece of the trail

A Piece Of The Trail

after a full day of driving on ‘the rock’ and a few stops along the way, my destination for day 3 was almost upon me. i started out on the east coast in st. john’s and arrived at rocky harbour on the west coast precisely 12 hours later…

this piece of road is just after the gros morne national park southern entrance on the viking trail (highway 430) just after wiltondale, nl. always on the lookout for a captivating road scene, this one hit the spot after all that driving! the west coast of newfoundland is absolutely spectacular and this capture was a lovely gift…

breaking up

Breaking Up

on my third day in newfoundland, i left the st. john’s area at about 5am. as soon as i hit the trans-canada highway (tch), i hit fog. it lasted for a solid couple of hours. i had reached the village of deep bight when i noticed the fog burning off… i made my way to the waterfront and parked by the boat launch to witness a most glorious scene: fog and clouds set aglow as they were breaking over the water.

summer magic

Summer Magic

never having had the opportunity to witness a true-to-life iceberg (much less photographing one), the possibility of seeing some was a powerful attraction and ultimately cemented my decision to visit newfoundland once and for all!

i had seen this beautiful iceberg from the road leading to cape spear earlier in the morning – a chance encounter with a young lady preparing for an event at the cape’s parking lot convinced me to hike the trail… a presumed short excursion turned into a 4 hour adventure to and from gunners’ cove.

witnessing this icy monolith and capturing it made for a beautiful heartfelt experience that i will cherish for a long, long time…
