Bonavista

Bonavista is one of my favourite places to photograph. It is located on the tip of the Bonavista Peninsula about a three hour drive from St John’s, the capital of the province of Newfoundland and Labrador Canada.

As a landscape photographer I am most attracted to it’s amazing shores. It must have stricken terror in the eyes of mariners; it is a rugged coastline of stunning natural beauty.

These first four images are taken in and around Dungeon Provincial Park

Bonavista is one of the oldest settlements on the northeast coast and still retains much of its small town historic charm.

And then there are the animals. Bonavista has a large public pasture adjacent to Dungeon Provincial Park. In (and sometimes outside) and around the pasture you will find horses, sheep and goats graze. I’ve personally had a few interesting experiences with the animals.
