Fall is my favourite time of year in Newfoundland. The light is exquisite. With the sun lower in the sky than at high summer, it creates long shadows and has a more golden glow. The air is clear and fresh, making the details and textures of the landscape standout as though etched.
The land beckons with rich colour and an earthy scent that is meant to be deeply inhaled. It is the best time of year for hiking, berry-picking, and sightseeing. The days can still be warm, but the cool nights seduce you into deep sleep.
Every September and October you hear the same refrain from locals, "What weather! I can't believe how nice it is!"
