It’s all too easy for anyone today to hang a photo exhibition and call themselves…
I’ve been traveling in New Brunswick and southern Nova Scotia over the last two weeks on a much needed family vacation, so that’s the main reason for my lack of activity on the blog recently. I typically try and take some time off in August before the busy fall schedule starts, both personally and professionally. It’s been a very busy first half of the year for me so far, and the remainder looks no different. I have no complaints, and can only be grateful for the opportunity to spend my time doing what I love to do – for me that is the essence of humility.
The Bay of Fundy in northeastern Canada is world renowned for it’s amazing tides, up to 40 ft in some places, and this creates some very unique landscapes to photograph. I spent most of my time on the peninsula of Nova Scotia, which is southwest of Cape Breton Island which I visited and photographed last year. I also had a chance to visit Kejimkujik National Park which has great canoeing and biking trails, plus offers amazing photographic opportunities. I was specifically interested in a section of the park that contains a rare stand of old growth hard wood trees, and a rainy day provided great light and mood- perfect for image making.
We also visited Bay of Fundy National Park and Fundy Trail in New Brunswick, places I definitely plan to visit again in the future. I enjoyed mountain biking with the family, as well as visiting many of the ports and harbors in the area. Of course my main interest was the amazing seascapes along the coast, so I’ll be uploading more images over the next few days as I get more time to process my raw files. I also plan to create some Lightroom videos showing how I processed the images. Stay tuned…

These are all very pleasing images, Robert. I especially like the rocks from the Bay of Fundy. They almost look like eggs. There is a bit of abstraction to the photograph that makes it interesting.
Your photos are fabulous. FYI, Nova Scotia is not an island, and the tides reach over 50 ft in some places and 40 feet is the norm in the upper Bay
Thanks for the generous feedback – I appreciate it! Thanks also for spotting my errors in regards to Nova Scotia – I was thinking Cape Breton- they have been corrected!
Your pictures are great and it’s nice to see visitors such as yourself coming to the province.
I was born and raised there but now live in British Columbia and being a Nova Scotian at heart, I do have two clarifications in regards to your blog to point out that I feel are required. Firstly, it’s Kejimkujik National Park, not Kejimkejik as you had written, (not a big deal really, just a spelling mistake, but still I wanted to point it out). Secondly, and more important, you stated that “I spent most of my time on the island of Nova Scotia”. Please note that Nova Scotia is not an island. It is a peninsula connected to New Brunswick by the Isthmus of Chignecto. Cape Breton is an Island and is considered part of the province of Nova Scotia although physically separated from the main peninsula by the Strait of Canso. It is however connected to mainland NS by the Canso Causeway. Just wanted to clarify these two points and note that if you are going to blog, perhaps making sure the facts are correct would be wise. Keep up the wonderful photography wherever your travels may take you as they are lovely to look at and enjoy.
Hi Lisa, thanks for the great feedback and corrections – I do appreciate it. Quite honestly I got confused with Cape Breton and automatically said an island, which of course is incorrect. That’s what happens while blogging when I should be sleeping 🙂 Thanks for visiting and look for more photos in the days to come. Best Regards
I enjoyed your beautiful pictures!
Thanks Lee – appreciate the feedback, thanks for visiting the blog!
