Iceberg Alley on my Doorstep

Duke and I went for a little drive this evening, and here are some of the images that we captured at Cape Freels and Lumsden… I’m no photographer, but hopefully you can get a sense of how much pack ice and how many icebergs are surrounding us right now!  It’s all beautiful, and for those of you who are not familiar with pack ice, it has a life of its own, moving and rolling and making wonderful gushing sounds.  Not at all like lake ice breaking up.

 Iceberg count on Day Four: zero. 

“Blue Ice is an illustrated biography based on the extraordinary diary of the late artist George A. Noseworthy. In 1970 he boarded the 253-foot “Chesley A. Crosbie” out of St. John’s, NL., bound for the ice-fields and the annual seal hunt off Northern Labrador and Newfoundland. Until this time, he was the only artist who had actually gone to “the front.”

Blue Ice dramatically records Noseworthy’s time in the wild. As he was portraying the life of the courageous sealers through his art, he was also recording the daily hunt in his journal.

Blue Ice is the true account of George Noseworthy’s passion for adventure – and the men of Newfoundland’s sealing industry whose bravery he immortalized in his art. ” ~Creative Publishing
