The Ultimate Campsite?

This was one of the most scenic campsites I could have asked for. I snagged it early before visiting/photographing Western Brook where I took the intro photo, first page.



I'll get to those pix later, this was at Green Point campground. It's in a lot of other reports especially from those riding the TLH. It's right off the main road.

The cool thing about this campground, there are stairs and paths down to the beach, I hummed that Zeppelin song... 'and she's buying a stairway to heaven'...



The view opened up:



More rocks, on the rock.







Then the light got real nice. I spent about an hour down here.



Angel light,



Time to head back to camp - the ultimate camp site at Green Point.

Yeah! Green point!
It is super-nice.

You didn't shoot all the garbage between the rocks though

Is that a subtle touch of HDR I see, or all working the RAW?
Either way, looks fabulous!

Ha, yes there was a little trash here and there, but overall wasn't that bad. Shots are all raw with some highlights/shadows in PS which can look very HDR, but the camp shot blends 2 exposures of the same shot, the sky was a lot lighter than the tent area. I got sooo lucky with the weather that day, took a little ride off the beat path as well...

Gros Morne National Park

A picture is worth a thousand words so I'll let them do the talking. You park, then hike out about 3km to a boat which takes you up the Western Brook Pond.











The boat ride... amazing,

I'm riding up to Nova Scotia the third week in August for two weeks. I will be following this closely as these are the kind of off pavement roads I like to ride. I'll have to mark these places on my GPS as my map and directional skills are seriously lacking. My only real "plan" is to circumnavigate NS counter clock wise, and time permitting visit Prince Edward Isle.

Thanks everyone,

The photo gear I took was the Nikon D7000, 18-200 VR lens, the tack-sharp Tokina 11-16 f/2.8 (!!) lens and Manfrotto tripod. Camera/lenses were in the tankbag which I padded and has a rain cover, and I also took a small drybag for the camera gear as a secondary system. Never got wet in the tankbag though.

ezrdr55,I hear ya! The dirt road I was on is in Saint Pauls, and they're all over the place up there. I had several gravel/secondary roads marked in my GPS just from surveying Google Earth and Maps. I hadn’t marked this one, but I just turned off the TCH when I saw it, read the sign that said not recommended for normal vehicles and ride at your own risk, or something to that effect. Called the Tickle Point Trail. Goes out to real serene set of fishing huts.







Lot's of the local residents were out, I heard there are estimated 6 per sq Km!!


A little video from that ride;
