Covid Creativity: 7Dec2021

by Elisabeth Somerset-Watson

Here are some of my favourite photos I took while out on Fogo Island, Newfoundland on a recent quick trip my husband and I took out there in October. 

Here are a comments about where I was and why I like the shot :

1.  The SWISH – Artist in residence cottage. 
Wild ocean behind the sparse and modern Norwegian architect firms designed building. Spectacular and cool. 

2.  Near the beginning of a 8.2km hike on the Lions Den Trail. Really spectacular view and inspiring sights beside the winding paths along the Oceanside. . Well marked and maintained trail with historical plaques telling about the people, Villages and life that have been there through the centuries. We had a local guide which was so great telling us many interesting and fun stories. 

3. Further along the trail. Beautiful and peaceful. 

4. Another image along the trail. I love the colours and wildness of this shot which shows the grasses, a dwarfed tree from the winds out there and the rock colours and textures. 

5. The Fogo Island Inn. Incredible architecture and place. 
I played with the lighting on this shot for an other worldly view and image. 

6..The Fogo Island Inn . Shot taken walking down towards the ocean over the rock to get more of a perspective of the building. Really amazing.
