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.

20150726_Newfoundland_001320150726_Newfoundland_0013 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.

20150726_Newfoundland_001720150726_Newfoundland_0017 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.

The mist pics are amazing! Love the little red shack with the antlers above the door. So east coast. Such a pretty province. Great pics!

The pictures in the fog are amazing - especially the one with the yellow house. All the pictures are great - I agree that it makes you want to grab that camera and head east.
