The cliffs at Sleepy Cove are a great place for light painting. I just wish I made better orbs at the time. The next orb I made (in a different location)  was much better, but it will be a little while before I upload it. (I’ve got lots of photos to go through before I get to it)

I spent the night in Sleepy Cove to do a timelapse of the moon set, but  first I did some light painting. I still need to work on my orb spinning. I used a flashlight on a rope to make this one, but I forgot to put a tissue, or something on it to get the top of the orb. As I drifted off to dream land I listened to the sound of the ice bergs calving and wondered why they only seem to do that when I’m not looking.

"Tiger Stripes"Seeing these blacks stripes made me wonder what caused them. My first thought was ash from volcano eruptions, simply because I’ve heard about people studying ice core samples and using them as a timeline for changes in the environment. Volcano eruptions are one of the many things they find in the different layers. I searched the internet and most sites say the same thing.  “Hues such as brown, black and yellow are caused by sediment, picked up when the ice sheet grinds downhill towards the sea.”

"Tip of the Iceberg"I saw a lot of icebergs in my travels, but this was one of the few where you could see a little bit of what is usually hidden under water.From Wiki: Because the density of pure ice is about 920 kg/m³, and that of seawater about 1025 kg/m³, typically only one-tenth of the volume of an iceberg is above water. The shape of the underwater portion can be difficult to judge by looking at the portion above the surface. This has led to the expression “tip of the iceberg”, for a problem or difficulty that is only a small manifestation of a larger problem.

"Icy Islands"This might have been the biggest iceberg I saw while I was exploring Newfoundland. I may have see some bigger ones, but they were so far away it was hard to get a good sense of scale.I’m going to guess that the highest peak of the biggest iceberg is close to 180 feet. I got this number by estimating a ten foot measurement using people on a boat that was next to the berg. It’s not an accurate measurement, so don’t quote me on that.

"Fire & Ice"A still from a timelapse of the sunset over a large iceberg at Goose Cove, Newfoundland. I was hoping this would make for a good time stack, but it’s fairly unimpressive because the clouds pretty much disappeared after the clouds in this photo drifted out of frame.

"Chasing the Light"After shooting a giant iceberg here earlier in the day, I decided that I would come back at sunset. (I already posted a shot from the end of that sunset) After getting out of my car, I was happy to find this scene beautifully lit by the low sun. You can see the iceberg I was going to shoot, just left of the gazebo.

Some of the first icebergs I saw on my trip out east. It was neat to see the tall and pointy iceberg. I couldn’t help but wonder what the rest of it looked like, but I wasn’t about to go for a swim to find out. Ha! This photo gives you a better sense of scale with the boat and people for reference. I saw icebergs that were way bigger than these while I was there. I was amazed to  find out that they can take up to 3 years to make it here, floating all the way from Greenland.

"Blue Ice Cube"A big ice cube in an even bigger drink. This is a 3 shot panorama of a giant iceberg in Goose Cove, just outside of St. Anthony, Newfoundland. I shot this after a timelapse of the sunset, and luckily I still caught some of the pink sky.

"The Beauty in the Chaos"This was another one of those times when I looked like there was going to be a good sunset, but I couldn’t find a decent place to shoot. After a few fails attempts, I sett;ed with this spot that had a mostly clear view of the ocean. The sunset did not disappoint. This is 137 long exposures (5 seconds) combined into one image using the lighten layer-blending mode in photoshop. I processed the first 12 shots with the “shot comet” preset as well as the rest of the stacking with this script. advancedstacker.com
