I’m not sure how many places named “Freshwater” there are in Newfoundland.
John and I have a running joke, whenever we encounter one, in which we start reeling off the Freshwaters and associating them with events or features that make them unique. For instance, there’s Freshwater-where-we-camped-near Motion-Head, Freshwater-with-the-big-beach-on-the-way-to-Cape-Spear, Freshwater-down-Placentia-way-with-the-trail-that-we-haven’t-done-yet, Freshwater-near-Carbonear-with-the-marvelous-old-houses-and-root-cellars and so forth.
In fact, I would venture to posit that every major community in Newfoundland has a satellite cove, often resettled now, that is called Freshwater. It makes sense, when you think about how important water was and the fact that many of these coves were named by navigators and mappers on ships. Ships that have travelled any distance have several key priorities and replenishing the water supply in an accessible area is top among these.
I was playing with the ND filter and a wide angle lens for the shot above. Something I’ve not had a really good chance to do lately is to fiddle with that filter and the lens in combination to achieve results that reflect my initial intentions. This is getting closer, but it still isn’t quite what I was looking for. I tried it in colour, but it’s better in black & white, I think.
