Local Panorama Pic

Slow day at work (from which I can finally sign in again *L*)...

Taken yesterday from Signal Hill, Newfoundland (where Marconi rec'd the first trans atlantic wireless signal way back) - on the right in the middle distance is Cape Spear, Canada's most easterly point. On the extreme left you can just make out an iceberg, shrouded in fog. With warm air (it was 27*) blowing over the colder water/iceberg, it forms it's own fog bank. The pic is in panorama format (3500 pixles wide) so I'll just post up the link instead of loading the pic directly to the site.

I´m really sorry that Canada or the States are seperated from Europe because of the Atlantic. Too many nice guys I want to meet.

One thing with living on a Rock is you're never far from the sea. I'm sure though you have lots of great scenery near where you live...I'm sure everyone does. It's just living next to it, we don't "see" it in the same light, we become immure to it I guess .

That trail you see is part of a local hiking system that extends out to Cape Spear in the distance, as well as in the other direction. The local section just around Signal Hill where I took the pic is about 3 km but there's a lot of uphill to it! *L*

For sounds, it's pretty quiet up there...still waiting on the internet version of scratch 'n sniff though!

Wait a sec...that scratch 'n sniff'd made some sites pretty scary!
