Now we come to St. John's, the colourful capital city of Newfoundland and Labrador.
V1: We'll start by looking back to where we've just come from - well not quite - Cape Spear is just out of the picture to the left. We're on top of Signal Hill (where Marconi received the first transatlantic radio signal in 1901), The Narrows lies beneath us and Fort Amherst lighthouse guides ships safely home at the entrance, you can also see the remnants of the wartime gun emplacement below it.
V2 & 3: This shows the core of the city, the two main structures to be seen are the Basillica Cathedral of St.John the Baptist with its twin towers, this was the most prominent feature of the city until "The Rooms" was built almost alongside it. This huge structure is supposed to replicate the rooms that were a feature of all fishing communities at one time, these were a cluster of steep roofed buildings where families gathered to process the catch, and just generally socialise. This new structure gathers the Newfoundland Archives, Art Gallery and Museum in one place, there is a soaring atrium which (in my opinion) is an awful waste of space, and is the major reason for what I don't like about it, its sheer size, totally out of scale I think. Having said that, it's an interesting place to visit and affords a great view out over the harbour, as V4 & 5 show.
V6: Quidi Vidi village was a fishing community nestled behind Signal Hill (that's it back right), it has it's own narrow opening to the sea. I say 'was' as its more 'arty' now!

Thanks foir looking, your interest is very much appreciated by me!

I think they show better large + F11

A marvellous set of shots, Jim, showing off so well the topography of the area and activities along the water front. There is a remoteness about the area which comes over so well in your images. Very interesting to see.

An excellent set of coastal scenes Jim, I couldn't pick a favourite here as they are all so good and interesting in their own way. I'm surprised at how bare the grassland is in the surrounding area, you certainly haven't had much rain recently where you are, you are more than welcome to some of ours!

A wonderfully illustrated tour of the city, Jim. Such a strange and beautifully isolated place.....and what fine music they make there.

What a superb series of shots Jim, the one in St Johns bring back memories of our enforced 3 day stay due to problems with the plane on the way back from Toronto, part of the way across the Atlantic when we had to turn.
Would love to go back there again under different circumstances.

This is a very interesting series of shots, Jim.
Re. your remark about the price of a printer, it's the same over here, the HP printer that I have just purchased was inc. 2 std, very low capacity, cartridges, and it cost 5 less than two high capacity cartridges. I think that the companies sell the printers cheap and make their money on the, over priced, replacement cartridges.

I was quite taken by these wonderful images of the coast there. It reminds me so strongly of the coast line at Ellenabeich, Seil Island looking over to the Island of Mull.

It's too hot here to get out, so I'm trying to play catch-up in the gallery today, and wanted to come back and leave a comment on these. What grabs my eye is the clarity of the skies and pristeen waters. And it never ceases to amaze me how this reminds of Western Norway where I hail from.
