Photographer's Note

“Tide’s Point Light” is the name of this photograph and it was taken in extremely foggy weather. In fact, is the light effective in intense fog?
The light wasn’t even turned down however a loud fog horn sounded every twenty or 30 seconds.
Beyond the light is a massive open blue sea hidden by extensive mist.
This photo was taken from the wooden helicopter landing pad.
In order to get here you need to take a twenty minute ride in a car over a bumpy dirt road from the small community of Fox Cove.
I was very disappointed that the view was covered in dense fog. In fact during my four day stay in this area it was foggy all four days. June is not a good time to visit this area because the older fishermen say it is capelin weather. These are the tiny fish that spawn on the beaches in June.
Ten years ago I visited here on a sunny day and it had to be a full scenery with a deep blue ocean on large tanker ships passing by.
As you can see, all the lighthouses in Newfoundland /Labrador are operated by the government of Canada. Many are operated automatically without people. However this one has a full time light keeper and the house is just to the right of the photograph.
