Photographer's Note

Minas Basin is a fascinating place.

The sand is red and when the tide is out the beach seems to stretch out forever.

The high tide in this area can reach 52ft (16 metres)above the low tide. When the tide does change the landscape changes dramatically. Around here virtually all the boats sit on dry land during low tide, tied to their docks which tower above them. When high tide rolls in, the boats rise to the dock level.

14 billion tonnes (14 cubic kilometers) of sea water flow into Minas Basin twice daily, the Nova Scotia countryside actually tilts slightly under the immense load!
