“A five-minute drive from downtown, St. John’s harbour has been used by fishermen from all over the world since the 16th century. I was struck by the tranquillity of the scene and its contrast to the rough water and hard work that fishermen routinely experience.”

“Being from St. John’s, I’ve always been in love with the houses on Jellybean Row – their colours show the life and spirit of the city. You can see them from the waterfront downtown, a neighbourhood called The Battery.”

“While I was there on a business trip, I headed off to Bay Bulls, just 20 minutes outside of St. John’s. We weren’t on the water long before we came across our first iceberg. To think that this incredible product of nature had travelled all the way from Greenland was humbling.”
