"IceBerg"

I finally got to see an Iceberg pass by the Eastern Coast of NL. It sure is a sweet sight to behold. Hope to be kayaking near them this weekend. This Shot is from Fort Amherst.

"A Berg From Fort Amherst"

This was taken at 5:30 pm on Thurs. May 31st/2007. It was freezing when I took this shot and unfortunately my camera does not have much zoom but this berg was huge. Three stories or so high.

"Yes Bye!"


This brought back a flood of memories from my youth when my own mother use to hang her clothes on the line and that was after they were washed in one of those old wringer washers with the rollers. All by hand. But the smell of the freshness when you took them in.......amazing!

"Bell Island Light"


The Bell Light looks as if she is watching over the freighter in the distance.

"Monster Leg"

This looks like the paw of a huge rock monster.

"Gearing-up"
