Along Highway 430 in Newfoundland, Canada there are many fascinating places to pull over to enjoy the scenery, but this particular foggy day around Sandy Cove was very intriguing. Looking out over the water, it is hard to tell which formations are pack ice when the fog sits so low on the water's surface.Down the center of the pack ice, there seems to be a path that might lead to some heavenly place on the opposite side of the fog bank. Billowy clouds rest in the sky in the background and hover very close to the water and the peaks of the pack ice. Let your imagination run wild as you watch nature's miracles unfold before your eyes.Foggy days are very common through the Strait of Belle Isle in Newfoundland, Canada and on some days the strait is completely socked in all day. Water vessels are potentially stranded at this time of year, due to the amount of pack ice floating aimlessly around but the fog makes conditions extremely dangerous.For tourists seeing these conditions from the shores along the coastline of Sandy Cove in Newfoundland, it is fascinating to watch these large masses of pack ice. Pictures taken on foggy days are very mystical as the pack ice intermingles with the low lying fog. Occasionally there are clear patches where unique hues of blues, greens and whites can be seen throughout the pack ice and under the surface of the water where the base of the floe sits.Pack ice in the Strait of Belle Isle seen from Sandy Cove during a foggy day along Highway 430, Trails to the Vikings, Viking Trail, Great Northern Peninsula, Northern Peninsula, Newfoundland, Canada.
