"Life and Death"I saw this scene on the walk to the boat tour of Western Brook Pond in Gros Morne National Park. I like the contrast between the vibrant Iris flowers and the dead, squiggly tree. The mountains in the background are a nice touch too.

"End of the Fjord"If you ever find yourself in Newfoundland, you have to go see Gros Morne National Park, and if you do, I highly recommend taking the Western Brook Pond boat tour. It was amazing, and I can’t wait to show you the hyperlapse I shot from the boat! This is one of the frames from the timeapse. I cropped a little off the bottom of the photo. From Wikipedia  “The Western Brook Pond is a Canadian fjord or lake located in Gros Morne National Park on the west coast of the island of Newfoundland. It is in the Long Range Mountains, the most northern section of the Appalachian Mountains. It is surrounded by steep rock walls 600 m (2,000 ft) high, having been carved from the surrounding plateau by glaciers. After the glaciers melted, the land rebounded and the fjord was cut off from the sea. Salty water was eventually flushed from the fjord leaving it fresh. The catchment area is composed of igneous rock with relatively thin soil, so the waters feeding Western Brook Pond are low in nutrients and the lake is classified as ultraoligotrophic. It is fed by Stag Brook at the extreme eastern end of the lake and by numerous waterfalls cascading from the plateau above. One of these, Pissing Mare Falls at 350 m (1,150 ft), is one of the highest in eastern North America.” You can see Pissing Mare Falls on the right. Here’s a closer shot of the falls… https://www.flickr.com/photos/matt_molloy/14917889386/

"The Ocean Rocks"
A timelapse of the sunset at Berry Head in Gros Morne National Park. I put my camera on one of the giant boulders to get a better perspective of the other rocks. This is 281 photos merged into one image using the lighten layer-blending mode in photoshop. The first 25 photos were stacked using the comet script to create a smooth transition into the “normal” stack. You can find both scripts I used and a bunch more here. advancedstacker.comHere’s a single frame from the timelapse. https://www.flickr.com/photos/matt_molloy/14743637708/

"Berry Hill Stairs (3D)"Part of the trail that takes you to the top of Berry Hill had stairs. As I was heading back down the trail, I thought these stairs would make for an interesting stereoscopic shot.Cross your eyes so the 2 images overlap. When they line up, it should look 3D.

"Light Shower"A single frame from a timelapse I shot of crepuscular rays sweeping across the Mountains of Gros Morne National Park. I cropped this one to emphasis the good bits. Here’s an uncropped frame from the timelapse with more rays… http://matt-molloy.tumblr.com/image/92098184960

"Rusty Cairn"Since there was an abundance of rocks, and the perfect base right next to me, I decided to build a cairn. The first of many that I built on my trip around Newfoundland. I wonder if any of them are still standing.The color of the rocks is from the high iron content, rusted from weather.

"Standing on the Table"
It was a great view, standing on the mountains of the Tablelands, looking over the amazing landscape of Gros Morne National Park. I wish the camera could see how close to the edge I was standing, since it was a tough spot for me to be, being afraid of heights and all, but the edge is hidden by the rocks between myself and the camera, making it seem like a perfectly safe place to stand, and in turn making it slightly less dramatic. The cliff wasn’t that high anyway. I’ll be uploading new photos from the trip daily (if all goes well) but I’ll only post my favorites on tumblr. You can see all the photos I’ve posted from the trip so far, here… https://www.flickr.com/photos/matt_molloy/sets/72157645848090057/

"Cosmic Highway"The Milky Way over the mountains of Gros Morne National Park in Newfoundland. You can see what I believe is a pair of satellites cruising down the great rift, then dark part of the Milky Way. The road was lit with the lights of my SUV. I should have used my big flash light to light the trees on the left, but I didn’t think of it at the time.This was my first night in Newfoundland, and I was happy to find out how dark it was at night, at least in the Gros Morne area. I figured I would do lots of night photography while I was here, but it didn’t work out that way. Sleeping in my car didn’t allow me to keep my night owl scheduled, because the heat of the morning sun always woke me up fairly early. I also did tons of hiking during the day, which wore me out, so most nights I could hardly keep my eyes open by the time it was dark enough to shoot the stars.

This is a 3 shot panorama.The Anguille Mountains are part of the Long Range Mountains that run along the west coast of Newfoundland.I’m sure this is a popular place to stop for photos, since there is a big parking lot along the highway. The strange thing is that there is no stores or buildings to warrant building the parking lot. Perhaps it is meant for RV parking, since that how it’s most commonly used. (aside from a good place to pull over for photos) I slept here on my last night in Newfoundland and woke up to an amazing sunrise over these mountains. It will be a while before I get around to uploading those photos.Here’s my blog entry for this day of the trip, I’ll be referring to them when I write about the photos, in hopes that they help my poor memory. http://matt-molloy.tumblr.com/post/90272162600/cross-canada-adventure-day-5

Thanks Charlotte!
I’ve been taking photos for a long time, but mainly “pointing and shooting” to document the highlights of my life. It’s only been a serious hobby with a more artistic spin since 2009 or so.
