Our Top Traveller Photos From 2018
Another year has come and gone and as we say hello to 2019, it’s a good time to look back on our top traveller photos from 2018. Feeling inspired? Be sure to share your 2019 adventures with us using #ExploreNL and tagging us @NewfoundlandLabrador on Instagram.
Along the south coast of the island portion of Newfoundland and Labrador, you will find a hidden gem of a community called Francois. While pronunciations vary, what remains constant is the rich beauty of the landscape in a magically remote place only accessible via coastal ferry. If truly unplugging is high on your to-do list, then may we suggest Francois. It has curb appeal, minus the curb.
Goose Cove Iceberg
Sometimes describing the size and total mass of an iceberg needs more words than the English language can muster, thankfully on those occasions we have pictures like this from Goose Cove in June of this year.
The lighthouse at Ferryland is always a top destination each year, usually photographed in summer its a treat to see it lightly dusted with snow in a moody winter sunset.
Trinity Whale Sighting
Anytime one of these magnificent leviathans of the deep pops up to say hello, its a special occasion. Thankfully, Michael Winsor was ready and waiting to greet them and capture a memory for us all to enjoy.
L'Anse Aux Meadows
On occasion, our majestic scenery is hidden by the rolling fog created by our temperate marine location and climate. Oddly enough, its a photographers dream as it presents all kinds of interesting light and possibilities.
Western Brook Pond
Western Brook Pond remains an iconic experience known around the world. We never get tired of looking at the stunning cliff sides, lush greenery and azure waters that make up just part of its majesty and beauty.
Spillers Cove Iceberg
This year, iceberg season got started a little earlier than usual. This great capture came from Spillers Cove near Twillingate shows a stranded berg along the ruggedly beautiful shoreline.
This picture from the Torngat Mountains National Park in Labrador is a spell-binding example of the wild and raw environment you can experience when you venture to The Big Land. This collection point of meandering streams and melt-water culminate in one of the crystal clear rivers that make this such a special place.
