Morning Reflection

while i was waiting for the fog to sort itself out on this morning, i was greeted by this scene at the entrance to new harbour, newfoundland.

Grounded

i happened into this little fishing village when i found the gate open at the top of the hill off the viking trail not too far from western brook pond – it seemed deserted on this day. this is the first photograph i took before i started looking for someone, anyone, in the village. after a cursory glance around and knocking on a few doors (to no avail) i did meet one thomas gilley who arrived after me. he gave me a brief history of the village and its name: gull marsh. after chatting for a bit, he gave me permission to photograph at my leisure… thanks thomas, if you ever stumble upon my work (i did leave him a business card), i hope you see this shot. 😉

newfoundland – day 11

day 11 – july 11:

bright and early indeed, i left corner brook thoroughly impressed with this little jewel of an urban oasis in that sea of rugged and scenic landscapes. not wanting to have another long drive, i thought i would stay the night somewhere near the midpoint to st. john’s, say the city of gander.

well, it was a thought anyway… about an hour or so before reaching gander i decided to pull off at a visitor centre i had visited the week before. the gentleman there had been quite knowledgeable and had pointed out a few things for me to look out for. if he was there, i would tell him about the great time i had had and that all his suggestions were spot on!

peter b. was there and recognized me straight away… he asked about my trip and i told him about my adventures. i had left one of my business cards with him the week prior and he proceeded to tell me how impressed he was with my work. i thanked him for taking the time to look at my website. he then made a suggestion to me about another place to visit on my way to the east coast: shag rock just outside the town of whitbourne about an hour or so outside of  st. john’s… he showed me a picture from a website and i was immediately taken – i had to photograph it!

well, so much for taking it easy! i blew past gander, gambo, glovertown, terra nova national park and clarenville, all along the tch before arriving at whitbourne.

the weather had started to turn and i was getting anxious that i would not be able to see and photograph shag rock properly because of the weather. i found a room, unloaded my bags and started on the half-hour or so trip to shag rock north along route 80. hindsight being 20/20, i would have been much better off finding accommodations in whiteway, but it’s no use crying over spilled milk. 😉

it was fogging over…

i would have another attempt in the morning before continuing on to st. john’s…

sunburst over the bay

Sunburst Over The Bay

so… on our second last day in tobago, we chartered a boat to take us from batteaux bay around to pirate’s bay. little did we know that we would be in for the ride of our lives! the waters are their roughest around the end of the year (we were there from christmas eve to new year’s day). we first headed to the st. giles islands where we witnessed thousands of birds flying around – the main island is a bird sanctuary and is uninhabited. next was witnessing the water rush through london bridge (photo below) – an outcrop with an arch through the middle. we then saw dolphins swimming around us, as we made our way to pirate’s bay. alas, photographing during this boat ride yielded very little, as we were quite literally being tossed around on a small 20′ diving boat. but trust me when i tell you it was a ride i won’t soon forget! this was our destination for the first leg of the trip: pirate’s bay – a little cove inside the larger man-o-war bay. we were rewarded by a beautiful sunburst through the clouds above!

sundown from the market

Sunset  From The Market

returning from icacos along southern main road, the sun was starting its descent in the late afternoon. i was looking for a place to set up my gear and ended up at the otaheite bay fish market. there were many people milling about when i parked the car. i made my way to one of the docks and started shooting…

Waiting 1

a drive to the southwestern tip of the island of trinidad, took me to the village of icacos. virtually deserted on this day, i scarcely saw anyone around save for a few kids playing on the street leading to this beach/fishing area. i suspect these pirogues were awaiting their owners for the next fishing trip out in the bay…

Peaceful Reflection

from the same shoot as at rest, here is another boat resting until its next mission, under those great clouds and rare, wonderful early afternoon light.

at rest

At Rest

on my very first getaway from greater port of spain, i headed to waterloo on the west coast of the island of trinidad. the overcast day, absent the habitual heat and sun, made it ideal for a road trip! located there is the temple in the sea (under renovations for my visit), a well known hindu site of worship. (if you are interested in its fascinating history and origins, please read here).

photographically, there was not much to be done with the temple itself on this day, so instead i focused on the boats resting in the waters just north of the temple. the clouds were doing their thing and provided for a wonderful sky and a lovely light for this early afternoon – not usual for this time of day.

i plan on returning there soon to photograph the temple itself.
