It was a quiet morning on Fogo Island, Newfoundland. * All the photos below are part of my Fine Art America gallery, available as prints. Just click on them for a larger format and more details:
This rural and quite remote place in Newfoundland is a dream location for people who want to relax and get out from a busy modern life, but also for artists and photographers.
Don’t take me wrong though. Fogo Island life is quite busy with a lot of fishing activity – they also have in industrial fishery. But in the weekend everything and everybody is at rest, abiding to the weekend rules.
That weekend the Atlantic Ocean water of Fogo coves was like a mirror – what a beauty!
This is how the fishery looks like Sunday morning:

Wandering about all the lobster fishing? You will see that that made no exception… All the wooden traps were at rest on the side of the water as well. That gave me the opportunity to photograph them and play with them as paintings in the digital media 🙂 Here they are as picturesque as they can be:
Well, once again I adore Newfoundland and especially Fogo Island 🙂
