Canada – Cape Spear, Escape is only a wave away

IMG_3929_Wave002 copy

On a recent trip to the Avalon Peninsula of Newfoundland and Labrador, I journeyed to my favorite spot, Cape Spear. You can escape from everything as you watch the waves melodically crash into the rocky shoreline. I found a comfortable place to sit and began to photograph a series of waves. Just as I thought I had captured the perfect wave, the next one was even more gorgeous. Here was my favorite series from that day:

The roar of the Atlantic draws you to the edge of the rocky cliffs as your senses are in awe of Mother Nature’s majestic force.

Over the years, the rocky shoreline has been assaulted by the harsh Atlantic seas. Each wave taking a small portion of Newfoundland back out to sea.

The lighthouse is there to guide the boats into the harbour….

Canada begins here! … or ends. Depending on which way you are going!

  1. Gorgeous pictures! Haven’t made it out to that part of Canada yet but I definitely get wait till the day I make it there. Canada has so many beautiful places, it’s a gorgeous country

  2. I was at Cape Spear today (the day this was posted) for four hours. I then went to Signal Hill and the Cabot Tower. It was completely fogged in all day. It was cold (8 degrees), wet and foggy all day. Would have loved to have seen weather like this today.
