Sunrises, Sunsets, Beach Walks and Beachcombing

 The early morning crew enjoying the view from the oak in front of the house.
 Love watching these ravens every day.  
The purple blue background is the Bay of Fundy and on the far horizon is our neighbouring province, Nova Scotia.

 St. Martins beach ... tide's mostly in.

Tide's out.  A close up of the Flowerpot Rock seen in the previous picture. 
That's my son running below on the seaweed covered rocks. 

 The day after a storm, the beachcombing is always an adventure. 
In a few days this may all be gone ... gathered up and dispersed by the Fundy tides.

Another glorious morning sunrise. Beauty greets me everyday over  that vast expanse of water.

 The bonfire we had while watching the sun go down, as the sunset moved across the western sky .

 A glorious sunrise behind the Isle of Haute, 24 miles out into the Bay of Fundy. 
 Spellbinding display of natures offerings.

 Yes that's one of the two covered bridges at the harbour, almost lost in the fog.

Then the next morning everything changes again. 

St. Martins, New Brunswick, Canada

Who was St. Martin?

Gwen Buchanan said...

Thanks Wildside. The area was first called Quaco, which means Home of the hooded Seal. But later called St. Martins. I have always thought it was named that by early settlers remembering a place they had come from. I'm just guessing.

Beautiful photos and have missed your blog posts.

Gwen Buchanan said...

Thanks Mel,i want to get back at it. I had too many irons in the fire!

Guillaume said...

Gosh this is all SO beautiful! I particularly love the one of the crows in the branches of course. And the fog. I was complaining this evening in my blog that maybe I upload too many pictures. Now I have two minds about it. In the same time, I just cannot be the photographer you are.

Gwen Buchanan said...

Thank you but, Oh it's not me Guillaume... it is this amazing little part of the world. quite unspoiled with very low population... it seems that no matter where one points their camera, there is something beautiful in nature to photograph.

What a fabulous display of St Martin's Beach and the Bay of Fundy in all weather conditions. The Flowerpot Rock is quite spectacular, with the trees growing on top.

OMG - your robot detector is hard.

Gwen Buchanan said...

Hi there Janice, I didn't even realize I had a robot detector. I'll have to see if I can turn it off.

Linda said...

Beautiful photos! Warm greetings from Montreal, Canada. :) Gwen, you won't be able to turn off the robot detector, Google has implemented this tool in an attempt to reduce spam.

Gwen Buchanan said...

Hi Linda! My partner John, grew up in Montreal ... and he has fond childhood memories of it.
