Shiny happy people laughing & taking pictures

We all went out to Cape Spear on Sunday in the hopes that the sky would clear (it didn't) and it would become sunny and blue (it wasn't). Despite that, we managed to have a fun time. The swell on the ocean was tremendous. Apparently we're to get a pile of snow tonight (whose dumb idea was that??) and the waves arrived in advance of the storm.

So here are a few shots of a fun time, along with some cool waves.

I particularly like this next shot, as it shows the magnitude of the surf. We saw some tourists looking stunned by the awe-inspiring power of a storm-tossed sea. I'd look stunned by it too, if I were from inland Virginia, as they were, and found myself in Newfoundland in March.Tourists 2
Here's John, ensuring that Katherine will remain an only child:

It was Wikket's turn for an outing (we rotate the dogs through so as not to go insane):

Katherine had fun and more fun. She even sat still for a picture and smiled. We're taking her to the doctor tomorrow to be checked over.Laughter
I'm still enamoured of the rocks at Cape Spear. Their contours and shaping are fabulous.green tongue

I quite like the last one – the lines of the wavesare interesting and the spray is neat.

John took photos, too. I've finally been captured on memory card (once we would have said "on film"). Arg.

Vicky, vista-ing

    Thanks everyone!
    Jonathan, I use a Sony Cybershot DSC S60 (4MP). It has a great lens (Zeiss), which I think is part of the crispness. I’ve also learned to play with aperture and shutter speed fairly well, which definitely makes a different. Most of my shots are taken in manual mode.
