Changing light and different reflections


                                                                                                                                                        Photos by Kay Davies

I wasn't at Hopewell Rocks, New Brunswick, for very long before the light changed dramatically. The water of the Bay of Fundy changed color (except where it reflected the rocks) and even the land in the near distance changed. I wasn't there long enough to see the famous Bay of Fundy tide, but I enjoyed visiting the rocks and their reflections as part of my train trip to Canada's east coast last year.

Oh this is so great, Kay. We were there, too. It really is the neatest place, isn't it? It was in that area, I believe, that we were introduced to dulse

We brought some home for my brother and he LOVED it. Did you try it?

Lovely place and terrific captures for the day! A place I'd enjoy just sitting and watching the water. Enjoy your weekend, Kay!

I love how the trees can grow on the rocks. What a shame you didn't get to see the tide change - but then it would be a long, 12 hours, I guess, waiting....

Love these images and the changing light. Must be a wonderful place to visit.

One regret I have from our trip to Nova Scotia was the short time we had at the Bay of Fundy. We never got to see a tide change since we arrived late in the day and left early in the morning. But the view from the trail at the campground gave us a good bluff-side view. - Margy

Great shots! Looks like some prehistoric creature steppng into the water.

Lovely shots, Kay. They have the feel of the North about them, exactly what I like so much.

Stunning, reminds me of the 'hanging' mountains in the film Avatar. x

Beautiful. I'd like to sit inside your photos with a pen and a blank journal and just get started.

Love the last picture, what strange rocks ! looks like hippos almost, lol ! Mother nature can be very moody !

Dimple said...

The light changed a lot! I had to look carefully to see that the small rock in the first shot was the same one as in the second. Amazing!

Oh that second one is delightful!

Beautiful shots. The second one is so dramatic.

Kay, I enjoyed your photos. Lovely location.

Thanks for the visit to my site and in answer to your question on my Twin Rivers post. Yes the water goes around the bend and into a concrete basin. In the 19th century it was part of a resort where people went to soak in the mineral springs for medicinal purposes.

This looks like a great place to visit! Maybe I will someday...

I've heard about the Bay of Fundy tide change. Never experienced it though. Fascinating rocks there! Have a great week, Kay.
