Traveling to some of the outports of Newfoundland in 1968, I was taken with the vastness of the untouched wild country. This is Newman Sound, on a windy,rainy day with the clouds coming in from the Atlantic. The camera was an Exakta Varex 35mm. SLR, using high-speed Ektachrome film and a 50mm. Biotar lens. Scanned at 4000dpi using a CanoScan 4000US scanner.

    It is a glorious wilderness!!

  • Thank you Sharon, indeed it is. Though this photo was taken 40 years ago, the beauty of Newfoundland hasn’t changed.

    Mahalo George! Is this where you live? ’Ae, it would be wonderful to wander in here on horseback for weeks and weeks. it is so pristine and very beautiful, and I am so happy to learn it remains the same.

  • No, I was raised on Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia, which is across the water from Newfoundland, but I traveled there many times. My grandparents came from there so I was raised with many friends from Newfoundland. It’s a very rugged land, in some places it is a lot like parts of Alaska.Those places are on the Atlantic Coast of Canada, but now I live on Vancouver Island, on the Pacific Coast. I have a son on each coast and I manage to travel back and forth each year. I love the oceans and could never live far from one. I have been to Maui some years ago, and indeed it is very,very lovely.I hope to get back for another visit. You have a wonderful RB site, I will spend a lot of time looking at your images.

    Mahalo George! Nova Scotia! It is so wonderful you were raised on an island in such a beautiful place!! I am happy you see your sons often, that is good! ‘Ae, Maui is beautiful and I especially love the Hawaiian people, language and culture here. I too love the rhythm and power of the ocean. It is so beautiful. I enjoy watching the Honu, the sea turtles as they feed and play in the surf in early morning. And I am surprised and delighted when I see a Hawaiian Monk Seal. I do however sometimes miss the wildlife, deep forests and remote and vast wild beauty of Alaska. I don’t miss the endless deep freeze of the dreadfully long winters though!! LOL
    Thank you so much for your kind words. I wish you a bright and beautiful day!

    Aloha e Malama pono,

    Sharon
