Belle Island

Just over the hill behind the lighthouse. Also spotted from another part of the island – icebergs way in the distance…

Northeast Trail, Battery Road to Signal Hill, St John’s, NL

At the risk of angering my relatives, I admit freely, “gorgeous day but I miss the fog terribly”. Location-scouting for ghostly video is no fun with the sun on. Using my imagination to picture these locations in fog, or at least under grey skies.

This one might not look like much, but from the crevasse came the sounds of the ocean. Note to self – climb up again and record some audio!

Not in Brooklyn anymore

I went iceberg chasing down the Southern Shore to Ferryland, Newfoundland, this afternoon. It was a spiritual pilgrimage of sorts, I’ve been dreaming about the icebergs since my father moved back to Newfoundland years ago and sent a postcard of a pinnacled specimen locked in St John’s harbour. Hard not to stay all day and pay respects after waiting so long to see one. Ferryland’s mammoth chunk of ice was magnificent, blue in the grey sea, broken off from Greenland, a long way from home.

Minutes after I shot these photos the fog rolled in, blotting out the iceberg and the ocean and the road. A family of tourists drove up, clearly disappointed, cameras whirring in and out of focus, everything a grey-white blur. “That’s a sin” said one, staring into the abyss.

Radiolab’s Colours Episode – Fascinating!

On my hike with my daughter on the slightly (especially when carrying infant) treacherous North Head trail up Signal Hill, St. John’s, we were shrouded in fog. So much fog that I could not see the astonishing ocean view that I know is there, and through the particles I saw a rainbow. As I stood admiring the sparkling arc, another hiker passed me and I pointed it out. She didn’t see it. I was surprised but reminded of the recent Radiolab “Colours” episode…

Creatures that see more colours than humans, humans that may see more colours than others, the appearance of colours in writing …
