This is a continuation of my photo, Chain Rock.
Known as The Battery, it is a small fishing village within the boundary of the City of St.John's, Newfoundland.
If you look closely at the waters edge, you will see buildings of various sizes. These buildings are common along the shores of Newfoundland and are known as Stages. Stages are used by fishermen to store fishing gear, and to clean and process the catch of the day. During the winter, coal and some food items (mainly salted fish and meats) were also stored there.
I like the fall colours of this photo as compared to my other photo Chain Rock, it seems to match the colourful homes and personalities that live along the steep banks of Signal Hill and at the edge of the North Atlantic Ocean

This really looks very attractive with those colourfull houses build on what seems to me a very steep slope.

A good capture of the colorful building in this picture. I enjoy the perspective view of this shot. Good details and nice contrast. Well done.

This is a nice shot but I think I like the winter version better! The autumn colors do compliment the houses and the blue of the sea creates nice contrast. The lighting is excellent with nice sharpness and detail.

Lovely view of these perched houses full of personality. It makes for a nice graphical composition, very eye-catching, with beautiful colours well rendered and that particular autumn light.
I love it.
