Critique St. Anthony, Newfoundland

Discussion in 'Wanderlust and Travel' started by gnagel, Sep 14, 2018.

  1. St. Anthony is located near the northern tip of Newfoundland. I spent two nights there...mostly because I was interested in visiting the nearby L'Anse aux Meadows. L'Anse aux Meadows is an archaeological site, a National Historic Site, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and is the only authenticated Norse site in North America.

    I will share my L'Anse aux Meadows photographs in a separate posting. The following images are from my time in St. Anthony itself.

    1- Fox Point Lighthouse
    NIKON D850    ---    29mm    f/8.0    1/6s    ISO 64

    2- St. Anthony United Church
    NIKON D850    ---    22mm    f/8.0    1/200s    ISO 64

    3- Weathered blue shed
    NIKON D850    ---    130mm    f/8.0    1/80s    ISO 64

    4- St. Anthony Harbour
    NIKON D850    ---    112mm    f/8.0    1/50s    ISO 64

    5- Grenfell Interpretation Center
    NIKON D850    ---    14mm    f/8.0    1/200s    ISO 64

    6- Dr. Wilfred Grenfell statue...the name of Dr. Grenfell is still seen throughout St. Anthony. In fact, I spent two nights at the Grenfell Heritage Hotel and Suites. Dr. Grenfell was said to be the first doctor to reach the region. He would later establish a string of hospitals, cooperatives and schools for the people in this vast area. He initiated health care services for the more than thirty thousand residents in Northern Newfoundland and Southern Labrador.
    NIKON D850    ---    145mm    f/8.0    1/20s    ISO 64

    7- Hospital windows
    NIKON D850    ---    70mm    f/8.0    1/160s    ISO 64

    8- Blue metal door
    NIKON D850    ---    60mm    f/8.0    1/100s    ISO 64

    9- Fox Point Lighthouse
    NIKON D850    ---    62mm    f/8.0    1/125s    ISO 64

    10- Lighthouse window
    NIKON D850    ---    300mm    f/8.0    1/250s    ISO 64

    11- Power plant wall
    NIKON D850    ---    300mm    f/8.0    1/80s    ISO 64

    NIKON D850    ---    50mm    f/8.0    1/60s    ISO 64

    Thanks for looking...next up, L'Anse aux Meadows!

    #2 and #5 are impressive!
  4. Thanks Karen, Dave and Nick...

    This is one of my favorite kinds of photography--just walking the down the street and looking for things that catch my eye. It's usually colors and shapes!

    So, did you Screech
  6. #1, #2 and #11 are my favorites. Consider converting #7 and #11 to monochrome. Also possibly #5.
  7. Thanks Mike...and thanks for that suggestion.

  8. Cool set :D 

    #12 reminds me of my favourite quote from George Orwell:

    "And so abideth Faith, Hope, and Money, and the greatest of these is Money."
