I took the featured photo a long time ago during my very first trip to the Bay of Fundy and Grand Manan Island located in Canadain Atlantic province of New Brunswick.
To get to the Grand Island, it takes a two-hour ferry ride. I took the very first ferry of the day and we reached the island around the 9 am. This is was my first encounter with the Grand Manan. The fog was still thick and the tide was still high when we saw a small fisherman boat emerging from the mist. It looked mysterious.
Forty minutes later the rising sun burnt away the fog and it became extremely hot and humid for the rest of the day.
This year I visited Grand Manan on my way to Prince Edward Island and it was foggy and moody again. But this time, I took a couple of interesting shots of the same scene from the top of the rocky shore facing the ocean.
Shooting & Processing
I was on a fast-moving ferry and it was shaky. I made sure to reduce the shutter speed to 1/400sec to prevent unsharp and blurry photos and I took series of single shots hand-held.
I used a single RAW image editing in Lightroom. I described the process in Lightroom Rapid Editing System for Landscapes.
The Lightroom Preset Editing Formula: Natural (4, 13, 17, 22, 32)
