Burnt Cape Ecological Reserve

This summer was my 7th year going back to Newfoundland. I can’t believe how fast time has gone by. Every year, I love my adopted home more and more and try to explore an area. Even though we had very little vacation time this year, I was pretty pumped for a visit to the Northern Peninsula of the island. Despite the worst weather in decades due to El Nino, the landscapes were still awe-inspiring.

Burnt Cape Ecological Reserve is a limestone barrens with some of the rarest flowers in the world, found nowhere else on Earth! And some not so rare ones that were in great light.

Due to the weather, the limestone and the grey of the sky seemed to all blend together. Maybe it was the greyest place on Earth! But so atmospheric and beautiful.

The ocean was full of capelin and you could see them close to the shore which also brought the fishermen. The dark spots in the pictures of ocean are thousands of tiny fish! D7A_9537u
