Port de Grave

Port de Grave

Today's photos were taken in Port de Grave, Conception Bay in late December, 2009. As you can see, there was hardly any snow, which is becoming the norm around here in recent years. Like other communities in this area of the province, it has a long history dating back to the 16th century. As you can see from the photos of all the boats, this community is still an important fishing community despite the closure of the northern cod fishery.

Photos of the Day are for sale as stock photographs
and photographic enlargements.
They can also be purchased as slide shows
