Hiking on Signal Hill for real this time

This view of the harbour is from the Ladies’ Lookout Trail above the Cabot Tower on Signal Hill.
I painted the same area from a different angle a few years ago  ago.


I prefer the (almost) real thing, as shown above.  I was able to include a couple of the Signal Hill tarns, George’s Pond and Deadman’s Pond, and two  icebergs outside the harbour. One is the same iceberg I posted last week at Cape Spear, which can be seen in the background.  The other wasn’t actually there the day I took the photos on which this painting was based I photographed it ten days later from downtown St. John’s when we returned there before flying home.
