About this theme
Saint Pierre, Saint Pierre and Miquelon islands, October 2010. This tiny French archipelago is located just a few miles off the Burin peninsula (Province of Newfoundland, Canada). The islands' wild coastlines are mostly rocky and weather-beaten. This picture shows an area close to Savoyard Point on a rainy, windy autumn (fall) day. The waters around the archipelago are very treacherous and there have been over 600 shipwrecks along these coasts.
