OK, that might be a bit delusional. July was a weather torture test in Newfoundland and “Winter is Coming” has become “I told you so” as December gets a firm grip on us and we resign ourselves to the dark months. ….BUT! August was awesome and the summer stretched well into October so we got to do some great “fall” shooting that looked like an endless summer. A little bit of climbing with the Newfoundland Youth Team in Stiles Cove, yoga in the Manuals River with climber and circus aerialist Keely Whitelaw, getting dirty in the political trenches with Marg, Princess Warrior and glorious “summer” photos with NSO musicians Chantelle Jubinville and newest member Rosemary Lawton. The remote sandy beach at Lance Cove Point at the southern tip of the Avalon Peninsula is a match of anything in the tropics …ok, the temps were chilly but it LOOKS like the Caribbean! We took sheep for a boat ride on the islands off Tors Cove, danced with Katie Hardy at Cape Spear and it even made our shoots with Toromont CAT much more pleasurable. Our vacation adventures in August saw us out on the road kayaking, canoeing and exploring the out-of-the-way areas of north east coast of the island. So, here is good-bye to summer and hello winter. Bring it on. Skiing and ice climbing coming up.
