Life in Newfoundland is simple, peaceful and beautiful. Want a relaxing vacation? Newfoundland is the place to go.
But this post is not as much about relaxation, but about the fact that creates it: SIMPLICITY. It is well known that simplicity creates relaxation and we all need this so much these days.
I often like an environment where people live without too much sophistication and high tech. For instance, this is what Sunday morning can look like in Fogo Island. I made a post about it in the “Travel Art” group’s blog: Quiet morning on Fogo Island, Newfoundland.
In that post I also inserted some of my favorite photos representing “simplicity”. In the theory of photography, this is also called “minimalism”. or “minimalist art“. Those type of photography are basically images with few elements and a lot of space around. * Click on the pictures for a larger view!
In Newfounland you can find lots of simplistic / minimalist looking like scenes, just by looking at the boats floating on the water. There are many small coves part of the Atlantic Ocean all along the coast of his big rocky island.
I took this single boat in one of the Fogo Island coves. Because I loved it so much, I made it in three editing versions:
Here is another photo of a beautiful simple white boat reflected in the mirroring water:
And here is a totally unusual scene I noticed while walking with my camera around. Somebody displayed those old bottles found on the bottom of the cove on a wooden table normally used for cleaning fish.
I have some more beautiful boats but since I don’t feel well, I will end with this one in Rose Blanche near Port aux Basques, NFL:
The West coast of Newfoundland offers even more places to take a relaxing vacation, while admiring the beauty of nature and simplicity of things.
This is just one scene that impressed me by its simple beauty and I called it Serenity in Newfoundland. I uploaded it to my Fine Art America Newfoundland gallery and it’s available as art print. Click on it for details:
