This morning the group met at 5.30 AM which was our normal starting time in order to see the sunrise. We had a short drive to "The Pond" as we called it. This morning we had great fog.
We walked along the shoreline taking photos from different vantage points. This turned out to be the only misty morning.
Eventually we left the pond and headed to Norris Point where we had been the previous morning. A portion of The Anglican Church in Norris Point.
You can see it turned out to be a beautiful day in Norris Point. People getting ready to go out boating.
We actually saw quite a few Minke whales in Norris Point. However, I was unable to actually get a good photo of one. It was too difficult for me to time them coming out of the water as you never knew where they were going to appear.
Later on we went to Green Point for our night photography. Green Point is located 12 km north of Rocky Harbour and turned out to be a fabulous place to photograph. We went here several times during the week and kept discovering new photo opportunities.
There was a pretty nice sunset tonight.
In 2000, the cliffs at Green Point were approved as the Global Stratotype Section and Point for the base of the Ordovician system by the International Union of Geological Sciences. I really don't know what this means but the cliffs were very impressive. I did read that the shales represent a 30 million year record of deep-ocean sediments laid in a base-of-slope environment in the lappets Ocean. The limestone layers indicate periodic avalanches from the shallower waters.
There was some nice color on the rocks.
The light was constantly changing.
After the sunset we got some great colors in the sky.
It was finally time to call it a night.
