Newfoundland Photographer

Lumsden, NL

This past weekend I had the pleasure of visiting Matt’s home town, Lumsden. If you don’t know where it is, Google it; it’s on the Northeast corner of Newfoundland. This was my second time there and the scenery is absolutely amazing. It’s the perfect example of a small town in NL with so many photo opportunities. It’s usually the place to go when the sun is out because of their endless beaches of fine sand (much like Shallow Bay on the Western side of NL). Both times I was there the weather was less than desirable but it made for cool pictures, especially when the storm surge was happening. We spent our time there recording guitar tracks, lighting fires, and beachcombing.

One fun fact about Lumsden: a few people believe that Vikings may have landed there. While the evidence is scarce, we did come across part of a washed-up wooden ship hull that contained a wooden dowel still intact. I don’t know a whole lot about shipbuilding but we also noticed that the grain of the wood followed the curve of the hull, making it stronger. Here’s an interesting link if you want more information about Viking ships.

Mmmmm… Delicious noise.

    Love the pics of Lumsden! Between the beach and Aunt Ruth’s cooked dinner I think you’ve managed to make me a little homesick. :)

    Great photos AJ! We visited there this summer and the kids found a “Lazy River” just in front of the red beach house. It was where the fresh water ran out into the ocean. They would start at the top in their floaties and the current would take them downstream where Dave and Trevor would catch them! They spent hours doing this…it was an awesome day!
