Thanks. It was a fun place to shoot, my kind of scenery. I love the little villages by the sea with ratty little sheds and colorful boats.

Love the leading lines that sent me into the image, which gave me a sense of peace and balance.

I like the colors - looks like a wonderful, but hard life out there (unless they are all tour guides now?)

Thank you Karen! I was a little worried about the lines, glad you think they worked!

I love the bleak vast beauty of it. The people are wrangling their living from the sea as they have for about 500 years. There’s not much tourism to guide - a few small boats in the larger towns like Twillingate and Witless Bay that take people out to look for whales or puffins or icebergs. We saw few other tourists anywhere. Commercial chains, whether restaurants, gas stations, retail stores or hotels are simply non existent. There’s little wealth but also little poverty.
