My New Wheels

My New Wheels
I finally own the car of my dreams; a beautiful Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder GT-P convertible, seen here in this photo, parked at the edge of the ocean near our home in the tiny hamlet of Island Harbour, on the western shores of Fogo Island. We recently made an epic 5,800 km round trip (from Northeastern Newfoundland to Southern Ontario) to pick up this sleek, high-performance beauty! With my ailing spine it took us four weeks to get there and back, but it was definitely worth the effort! Looking forward to some top-down driving once summer finally arrives!

(captured handheld with a Sony SLT-A57 DSLR and Sony 35mm f/1.8 prime lens, @ 1/500th sec, ISO 100, f/2.5)

The car is very nice and I love the colour, but it is the background in this photo that appeals to me the most! What a lovely place to live!

Wow! what a story! You must be really proud of your new car. I can't imagine going to that length to get a car, but I know that life is different in Newfoundland. Where I live, new cars are a dime a dozen! I hope it holds up well during the winter.

Helen, you have put a smile on my face! You see, new cars are certainly a dime a dozen here too... But it is the car itself which is unique. In fact, this is the only Spyder GT-P registered in the entire province of Newfoundland, and is quite possibly the only one of its kind in all of Eastern Canada.
