Several years ago when we were still living in Newfoundland our son and his then fiancee came home for a visit. When they left the only flight available was at 4 a.m. That meant we had to be at the airport for 3 a.m., which was not easy as we lived an hour and a half away from the airport. We decided to spend the night at a Bed & Breakfast closer to the airport so we wouldn’t have to leave home in the wee hours. Early the next morning we hit the local Tim Horton’s. I mention it because it was one of the oddest visits to the coffee shop ever, bar none. As we drove up to the drive-through there were people ahead of us – on horseback!!!!! That was the start to a very different day. After taking them to the airport we headed home. The drive between Deer Lake and Stephenville is always beautiful with incredible scenery from the mountains in the Deer Lake and Corner Brook area to rivers, lakes, and ponds on each side of the highway. I am posting a few of the photographs I managed to capture in the early hours of that day. You will have to scroll to the very bottom to see one of my all-time favorite captures. I hope you will enjoy.

The Humber River flows into the harbour in Corner Brook
Mist hangs above the water in the dawning hours
the hills in the background are actually foothills, part of the Long Range Mountains that run along the West coast of the island of Newfoundland, Canada
Sunrise is always beautiful and the scenery tranquil
near Noel’s Pond, just outside of Stephenville, Newfoundland & Labrador, Canada
The sun shining through the mist over Noel’s Pond
Noel’s Pond is a popular summer-time getaway with many summer cabins along the shore
The view that morning was really spectacular. This is one of my absolute favorite captures, so surreal

  1. Ha, this all sounds very Canadian: going to a Tim Horton’s and seeing someone on horseback in front of you. That’s too funny. This looks like such a scenic drive and your pictures are beautiful. I have such fond memories of when we visited Newfoundland a few years ago. I would love to return someday. The landscape is stunning and the people are just so darn friendly!

    1. It was hilarious, and yes a very Canadian kind of thing! I hope you do get to visit there again. I would also love to go back. Would you believe I’ve never been to Lance aux Meadows? I also want to see the Torngat Mountains in Labrador. Thanks so much for your very kind words.
