The Bay of Fundy is a unique place, in Atlantic Canada, between the provinces of New Brunswick and Nova Scotia. It is famous for having the highest tides in the world. I love driving along the Bay of Fundy, where you can witness the constant change of the landscape along the shore. This area makes a perfect destination for travel photography trips.
The tides reach their extremes on Grand Manan Island. This island resides in the heart of Bay of Fundy, and it takes a 2-hour ride on a ferry to reach the island. When I arrived on Grand Manan, early in the morning, I saw fisherman leaving the harbor heading towards the open sea. This photo was taken just before afternoon, during the lowest hour of the tide. The water drop is astonishing, and as you can see, the only way for fishermen to come home is wait for the water to rise by 5:30pm.
