Weekly Photo Challenge: MOVEMENT

Welcome to Cape Spear, Newfoundland, the most easterly point in North America. 

It’s exactly 3,102 km from our front door and only 3,020 km to Ireland. Here the rugged coastline is treacherous and high winds, irregular tides, and dynamic ocean currents make it exciting and dangerous. Sometimes visitors get too close to the edge and get swept away by rogue waves of the frigid North Atlantic. This doesn’t deter us thrill seekers on this especially windy day.

Feeling as free as birds, we lean precariously over the cliff’s edge into the howling winds and revel in its power. It’s like standing in a wind tunnel only this is all natural. There’s no need to actually move to feel like we’re in MOVEMENT.

To see how others interpret the word ‘movement’ visit the Weekly Photo Challenge.

    Ack! Could never do that, not even get close to the edge

  17. Wow, that’s a great movement pic, but it made my heart stop, just thinking how easily one could get blown over the edge.
