Newfoundlanders and Labradorians are a bit different. We have our own dictionary of English which contains quite a few words that are just our own. Ballicaters, being one such word, are defined as “Ice formed by the action in winter of spray and waves along the shore-line, making a fringe or band on the landward side”. We have many pronunciations and spellings for that very same word.
I wanted to do some ballicatters and chose to challenge myself to seeing them from the perspective of a hunting bald eagle.
I wanted to get a bit of detail into the eagle, so I used a diamond bit engraver to create some feather details in it’s body and wings.
