Twillingate is canvas-come-live with its many coves, fishing boats, sheds and fishing stages, beaches, icebergs and whales. Photographers can often be seen in the early morning hours or at dusk when the light is at its best for capturing great reflections and iceberg images.
In fact, the growing number of photographers that visit Twillingate was part of the reason for the creation of the Unscripted Twillingate Digital Arts Festival that takes place in September each year.
The light quality in this scenic destination makes this a photographer’s delight. Get the best view of an iceberg or whale close-up from a boat or from Long Pond Lighthouse Point.
The early morning light reflecting off the water in the many coves create pictures that remind of the best works of the impressionists. Sunset in Back Harbour adds a magic yellow hue to any picture.
The numerous hikes in the area present many photo opportunities of coastlines and rock formations. The Natural Arch is a great destination. Sleepy Cove is another great spot for a unique picture with the remains of the old copper mine.
