Campground on Grand Manan Island (New Brunswick)

Last Updated on

This is probably the most spectacular campground I had the chance to visit. The first time I encountered it probably 10 years ago while exploring the Bay of Fundy in Atlantic Canada.

The campground is set on top of the cliffs of the island and it is a perfect location for whale watching while having a quiet meal.

At the time I took the featured photo the morning fog was not completely gone and I really liked the effect it created by hiding the horizon. It looked if the ocean was seamlessly transitioning into the sky.

Shooting

When I saw the ferry ship fast approaching the island I knew it was my chance for an interesting composition. I had to run for 300 meters or so to the edge of the cliff where I had enough space to set up the tripod.

Processing

It was a single RAW file editing.

I wanted to emphasize the vastness of the predominate blue hues of the sky and the ocean. Also I wanted to boost green/yellow colors of the campground to create a stronger contrast with the blues.

The Point Lobos preset from my Landscape Collection does exactly that and it was an easy choice. I applied Point Lobos  first and after I used TOOLKIT to boost colors and contrast.
