Gina Little, a technologist with the Meteorological Service of Canada, joined MSC’s Sable Island team in 2007 and worked in the aerology program until summer 2019. She spent six months (two three-month tours) annually on Sable, and willingly took on extended tours as needed. Between shifts, Gina walked and took photos, recording seasonal changes and the comings and goings of wildlife, with a remarkable eye for the island’s details, patterns, and scenes, many of which are fleeting. In spring 2017 (when this website was developed), Gina began contributing her photos for the series of photoblogs presented here. This summer, after 75 years of service on Sable Island, MSC’s aerology program ended. See also Gina’s profile.
Gina Little, who began working on Sable in 2007, had been taking photos of the island long before her first Sable Photoblog was posted on the Institute’s website. Here are some of those earlier images.
During her autumn to mid-winter walks, Gina collected photos of weather, water and landforms, with a unique perspective that found interest and delight in what might be overlooked by a less observant eye.
