This picture of beautiful Newfoundland coastal scenery was taken at sunset, when the sun was going down on another day, the rays are traveling across the water and just catching the rocks that line the shoreline of Green Point. This is a coastline in Gros Morne National Park, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site on the Trails to the Vikings along Highway 430 on the Great Northern Peninsula in Newfoundland Labrador.
Being a UNESCO World Heritage Site means that it is taken care of by the World Heritage Program so that it cannot be developed or changed, and that it is cared for so that it will remain in its natural beautiful state for many years to come. It is a way to preserve sites all around the world so that they will always be taken care of and cannot be developed for houses or anything like that.
Gros Morne National Park is a great place for camping as well, although it would be too uncomfortable to camp along the rocks here, but it has other locations to do so. The rocky coastline of Green Point would be a perfect place to come down to at sunset, set up a blanket or some cushions and watch the sun go down, until the last warm rays have disappeared and you can look out on the vast and calm water.
