The Road to Bonavista

The road to Bonavista is paved with good intentions. I set goals before every trip. This year I really wanted a good shot of the Cape Bonavista Lighthouse and a puffin in flight. Well one out of two ain’t bad. I shot over 600 frames of Puffins. They are like fat flying torpedoes. Even with the 1D Mark IV at 10 frames per second, getting one of these little guys sharp in the frame is tough.Atlantic Puffin

I have a couple of images that are ok but since we will be here two more days I will keep trying for that perfect shot.

Elliston is the root cellar capital of the world. Who knew?Root Cellar

It also has one of the best and most accessible puffin nesting sites that we have found. Elliston Puffin Site

We woke up to the sound of rain again this morning. It’s just one of those years here in the east: cold, damp and dark. The landscape in this area is wonderful. So when we had a bit of light last night we worked until it was gone.Elliston Shoreline

I don't know about you still trying to get that perfect puffin shot, Ron. That one of the puffin flying with the fish in his mouth looks pretty perfect to me! What a neat shot! Enjoyed all the photos and seeing where you are.
