Rural landscapes: amidst the March fog

SIGNAL HILL, ST. JOHN’S NEWFOUNDLAND

One of the most iconic places in this east-coast Canadian province was shrouded in fog when I visited. I didn’t mind; I knew anything I photographed here would be laden with atmosphere and I was right.
The misty structure is Cabot Tower, which opened in 1900. It was built to commemorate Queen Elizabeth’s diamond jubilee and the 400th anniversary of John Cabot’s North American landfall in 1497. Behind this view, on clear days, is a glorious vista of St. John’s.
