Newfoundland Pictures

I spent four months last winter working in Newfoundland on the Terra Nova FPSO. We lived about 40 minutes up the road north in Clarenville, in a house right beside Trinity Bay. Needless to say, it was a terrible winter, and besides being cold and extremely windy all the time, it snowed like hell. In fact, It was the snowiest winter on record for the 130 odd years since they had been recording it, with over 6 m snowfall. The following are some images that I took with Fuji Superia 400 on my Pentax ESPIO 90MC camera at our Clarenville home. Click on them to get enlargements.

Our rented house and trusty little Sunfire car. Behind the house is the old "Newfie Bullet" railroad grade

The icicles got really big, and it snowed a lot more
