waiting for clouds

Waiting For Clouds

waiting for clouds indeed… having found this site almost by accident in the morning, i returned in the late afternoon, but the sun was still giving off some fairly harsh light. i spent some time hiking the area until clouds started to move in. each time clouds obscured the sun a photo op was made available. after a few tries (and a couple of hours passed), i got this shot of steady brook falls. 😉

island cove from above

Island Cove From Above

upon arriving in corner brook, newfoundland i checked into the tourist office and was advised that given the short stay i had planned, a must-do would be the south shore drive. it is a lovely 45 minute ride along the winding route 450, all the way to the coast and ends basically at the town of lark harbour. from there i took little port road as far as it would go. i arrived at this canyon overlooking island cove as dusk was approaching…

At Rest On Salmon Bay

while visiting the town of st. anthony in the great northern peninsula of newfoundland, i met a new friend, robin g., who was heading home. he offered to show me around the area he lived in before i continued on to corner brook further south. we first made our way through the tiny village of main brook. this was photographed from water st., looking out towards devarenne (bushy) island on salmon bay.

Turtle Rock

arches provincial park, located between parsons pond and portland creek on newfoundland’s west coast, features ‘the arches’ as a centrepiece: a three-arch (previously four-arch) rock formation naturally formed by tidal action. in addition, there are other formations on the site like the one photographed here.

though there does not seem to be official names for each individual formation, this one resembles a turtle to this observer, hence the title i have chosen… (incidentally, i have contacted newfoundland tourism to see if the various rock formations have been named – apparently, they have not).
