Wonderful photos, Hoy! #23 especially is gorgeous, perfectly framed, and feels so...still.
In eastern US we call the glacial phenomena "pot-holes". I like "giants' pans" better!

Consider that you might be wrong.

Thanks, Jeremy. I can tell you that it is more often than not still, you have the open ocean straight ahead! But I understand what you mean.
Here are a few more - it is thousands of similar and different motifs there.

The seaside views are just like Newfoundland....many of the plants are the same as well!...however, some of the plants, like Lotus and Lythrum, are considered invasive weeds on this side of the pond!

I don't recall any kettle holes in our area. Very unique. 

I can see how the Vikings probably felt at home here when they arrived at L'Anse-aux-Meadows around 1000 years ago.

Great to see this area, and some lovely plants..the Lotus is also an invader here, not too common in my area--maybe in towns: I sometimes see some yellow things as I pass by in the car, though its not the only choice... I did see one plant in the foothills this summer, I wonder if it will be a whole hillside of them in a few years?

I'm very fond of P anserina-- originally I wasn't sure if it was native or introduced, but I have read its native, so I'd like to get some pieces, there are parts of my 'lawn' that could use it! Much nicer than grass  ;D I saw some in a nearby town this year, so I will have to try to get some pieces....
