It seems no matter how old you are you can recount “The Good Old Day’s”. For many of us photographers here in
think of the arrival of the behemoths of the sea in the spring. Large icebergs
would move down from the arctic via the Newfoundland Labrador Sea staging
a grand show. It’s been so long since we’ve seen anything but a few drabs of
ice in this part of we
now talk as if we’ll never see the big bergs again. Newfoundland

A lot of people might think Newfoundland is in the far north however I would like to point out that St John’s is at 47.561485 degrees north latitude, further south than our sister city of Vancouver, further south than Seattle Washington. Our climate is colder than these cities because of the path of the ocean currents. In eastern
the warmer Gulf Stream from the Gulf of
Mexico flows out into the middle of the North Atlantic
missing , providing
milder temperatures to Newfoundland Western Europe including .
Britain being further north at

It’s about to turn April 2012 and there’s a bit of ice around, who knows maybe this will be the year? Maybe?
ATTENTION! ATTENTION! This is not an Iceberg!
