We’re Facebook friends who met over her great photography in the Lumsden area of Newfoundland. If there’s an iceberg around, Trace is going to get a picture of it and it’s going to be good.
Last year she posted a picture on January 24, 2015, my birthday. This year, she and her aunt, Louise managed to find a berg in Cape Freels on January 14. Then they hunted around to get the best picture they could from Darlene Hillier!
After a huge blizzard on Saturday, she was out bird watching with her friend Janna. Yes, I see birds!
This is how she spent her Sunday and I’m so grateful she shares well with others. Thanks girl!
Iceberg season 2016 started with a bang when Darlene Hillier shared her iceberg photo taken in Cape Freels with the local weatherman’s page.
Darlene, can you please join our Facebook page?
And she did!
Darlene’s friend, Trace also got some shots of this berg and by the time it made it to Cape Bonavista and then Elliston, Eric Abbott was on the case. In addition to iceberg shots, Eric did some exceptional photography with the Sealer’s Memorial in Elliston.
The Sealer’s Memorial represents a father and son found frozen during the S.S. Newfoundland Sealing disaster. Documented by Cassie Brown in the novel, Death on the Ice, this tragedy and the loss in the same storm of the Southern Cross impacted a whole generation of Newfoundland families.
Eric’s capture of the snow-covered statue and an iceberg in background is stunning.
Eric Abbott photography. When you get over the lovely house, notice the massive iceberg!
After seeing Eric getting amazing pictures for a few days, we took a chance on Sunday, January 24 and drove to Elliston and then Maberly to find this. I apologize for the quality of the video but you can see how far our and how huge this berg is.
