[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
“Among the Tuckamores” is the name of this photo taken today at Cape Spear.
Tuckamore is a Newfoundland term used to describe the stunted fir and spruce trees that are found along the coast. The growth of the trees' branch tips is halted by the salt spray from the ocean and the chill of winter. Strong winds, rain, and hail also contribute to the trees' stunted growth. Tuckamores, referred to by some as 'tucks', are usually found on windswept slopes. They sometimes form small forests which are very difficult to walk through.
