St Anns Bay Coast from the Fifth Look-Off

St Anns Bay Coast from the fifth look-off
Photo 19 of 25: St Anns Bay Coast from the fifth look-off
Taken 2007 August 10 from the Cape Smokey Trail
at the fifth look-off (counting from the trail head in the park)
GPS 46°36.9??'N 60°21.5??'W

This is taken from the same place as the previous photo, but this time with the narrowest angle (fullest zoom) my camera allows and aiming straight down the St Anns Bay coast. One is far enough east now to be able to see into St Anns Harbour. The undulating brown stripe of the power line is also visible in this photo at the right.

This is one of the few vantage points in which it is possible to see Ross Beach below the plateau on which the parking lot is sited: it is the narrow strip of sand bordering the point which is third down the coast from here.

It is also one of those places where I could sit for hours enjoying the panorama and still not see everything on offer: each time I look at the photos taken from here I see something new. If this is the first time you have seen this beautiful scene, you owe it to yourself to see it for real as no photo can begin to do it justice! You may have to patiently wait for a good day on which to hike this trail, but when it comes, by all means go!
