Between Seasons on the North Head Trail [via mefi projects]

A longform visual essay (3000 words, 50 photos, and a song) about walking the historic North Head Trail in St. John's, Newfoundland, Canada. A tromp through local history, freezing rain, macrophotography, fog, a cholera hospital, moonlight hikes, tourists, foxes, and optical phenomena.

Hey I know Matthew. We had a little art group together when we were both in Montreal! His work is SO lovely. Here's me waving to Newfoundland from Texas!

I like the use of a contrasting dark background colour to set the mood in the "Fall to Winter" section. Very nicely done - makes me want to go there.

This is stunning. I regret we didn't take this hike on our way to PEI this summer. Next year, we'll stop for sure.
