Sunrise





Sunrise

In June 2011 we were on a cruise ship in the Mediterranean between Barcellona and Venice. Every morning, I got up early enough to photograph the sunrise.  This isn't one of the most dramatic, but it is the random photo for today! One morning, a couple came up to view the sunrise, but the guy looked at his companion and said that it was a waste of time because there were clouds.  

My advice is to stay and watch sunsets and sunrises for a while because it is a peaceful time of the day!

Photo Art





Photo Art

This morning, my Random Photo of the Day is a composite image of an iceberg, humpback whale and a northern gannet. I combined the 3 images to highlight things tourists might find in Newfoundland and Labrador.

I shared that one but included 4 more to show a few more examples of photo art.  I have 3 albums of this type of image on my Facebook page.  I am sharing one link today.

Rose Hips


Rose Hips

I photographed these rose hips during a winter walk in 2006.  The red rose hips stood out among the drab colours of winter.

I do have an album that features photos of wild roses throughout the seasons.  I am providing a link for those of you who may be interested.

American Robin

American Robin

This morning I chose this photo showing an American Robin perched on the branch of a dead tree.  As you know, I photograph birds a lot, especially in Florida.  But I took this one in the woods behind my house in Holyrood.  

The robin is common around here every Spring and Summer, but they are skittish and I don't get a lot of photos.  If you like this bird, or you want to see signs of Spring, feel free to check my Facebook Album of American Robins.

Bonne Bay Pond





Bonne Bay Pond

Friends of ours from Deer Lake had a cabin on this lake and we visited it several times over the years.  One day, while driving by, the water was so calm that I stopped to take a few photos.  If you haven't visited this part of the province, I would highly recommend it!

Alligator










Alligator

In the spring of 2004, my wife and I visited Wonder Gardens in Florida. I photographed one large alligator that certainly seemed to smile for the camera.   I later added my wife to one of the photos.  Captions welcome!!

Fishing

Fishing

This photo was taken in 1980 Sandy Point on the Exploits River near Norris Arm.  I got up early and I saw a young boy fishing.  I took several photos of him with the sun rising through the fog.  I always liked this photo which has been published as covers of 2 magazines.  It was taken in 1981.

Witless Bay

Witless Bay

This morning I happened upon a photo of an old house in Witless Bay that was taken in 1997.  I decided to share a photo of the same house taken in 2007.  In 10 years, someone purchased and restored the old house.  It was nice to see it.

Western Brook Park






Western Brook Park

In August 2010, I visited Western Brook Pond Park and walked down to the beach to take a few photos.  I've been there several times previously and it was so windy the sand was blowing around.  I didn't want my camera full of sand, so I didn't stay long.  The footprints in the sand were there when we arrived.  We do have sandy beaches on the island of Newfoundland!!

Leaves








Leaves

It was early morning in September 2006 when I photographed leaves on my hydrangea.  The leaves were backlit and the light was highlighting the veins in the leaves.   If you have been following my daily photos for a while, you know that I enjoy photographing plants and flowers.  I have a Facebook Page where I share photos of flowers and plants, and if you enjoy that type of photo, feel free to like the page.  I upload flower photos every day and many people appreciate the colours this time of the year.

Quidi Vidi Village




Quidi Vidi Village

In May 2012, people flocked to the tiny community of Quidi Vidi Village to view 3 large icebergs that blocked the entrance to the "Gut", the name they affectionately called their little harbour.  

Despite the fact that residents are snowed in right now, Spring Will Come!

Waikiki, Hawaii

Waikiki, Hawaii

This was a good photo to choose for this morning - day 2 after the biggest snowstorm in recent history.  This brought back memories of our trip to Hawaii in 1980.  This photo was taken from our balcony on the 11th floor of the hotel on the beach.

Hawaii was a beautiful place and I have many great memories of the 2 weeks we spent there.  I travelled the whole island a couple of times on The Bus.  I used to get off to take photos for a few hours, then catch the Bus back to the hotel.  I will create a Hawaii Album on Facebook soon.  :)
