20150727_Portfolio Photos_000120150727_Portfolio Photos_0001 Another early morning.  Today we went back to Green point, where we had been the previous evening.

20150727_Portfolio Photos_001020150727_Portfolio Photos_0010 It was a great beach to explore.  It was a bit tricky getting close to the water as the rocks were very slippery.  One of the members of the group did fall in the water but fortunately there was no harm done except for some wet clothes.   This beach was all about the rocks!

A close up view of the textures and colors of the rocks.

There were huge boulders on this beach.

20150727_Portfolio Photos_000220150727_Portfolio Photos_0002 This photo shows the rusty remains of the SS Ethie at Martin's Point between Cow's Head and Bonne Bay.  Its amazing that some of the boat still remains.  The story is that the boat was tossed by hurricane-ravaged waters until it ran aground  in 1919 and threatened to burst into flames.  There were a few heroic fishermen and a dog onshore desperately trying to save passengers and crew.  There was also a tale of a daring rescue of a baby stashed in an old mailbag dangling from a rope high above the raging sea.  Folk songs have been written about the tale, including "The Wreck of the Ethie".

Hi,
Your first 2 were the best encouragement for rising early - spectacular! I also thought the right rock vertical shot was interesting, for its texture and what I see as an aboriginal in profile.
Keep it up, Beth

I loved the rocks and the variations. The orange and red tones are from all the iron in the area. Black carbon reminds us of the coal mines.

Well done. The close up textures are good

I'm also a rock person and enjoyed the colors and textures in many of these photos, especially, early on, the close-up of the rock and later the almost lacy texture of another. The light and sometimes shadows in the first two were special for me as well.

Cheers, Beth

I love looking at your landscapes. You seem to be able to make magic with your camera - the scenes you capture are so beautiful. I don't know how you do it, but your photographs are so pleasing to the eye...and inspiring.
