Photographer's Note

These colourful fishing boats await the spring breakup on the slipway in the Town of Bay Bulls, Newfoundland.

If whales, icebergs, and seabirds is what you would like to experience, then The Town of Bay Bulls should be at the top of your list of destinations. With the hardships that fishing industry has brought to these people, they have turned to their surroundings to seek an existence.

A short boat ride from this dock will give you the opportunity to see Twenty-two species of whales swimming among icebergs in search of food. The nearby islands (Witless Bay Ecological Reserve) contain, some of the largest nesting grounds for sea birds in the world. The 4 islands are home to 520,000 Atlantic Puffins and over a million Leach's Storm Petrel, to mention a few.

I adjusted : brightness, saturation and cropped.
