IPhriday – Low Tide

Looking south

Looking south – the shore is the part that’s reflecting (on the left,) and in front of the trees on the other side. The water is the grungy bit in the middle.  The dark parts are exposed river bed.

There was a storm surge today in Maritime Canada caused by an extreme low pressure system and the fact that we have just had a new moon – when tides are most extreme. There was extensive damage in the Bay of Fundy, but none that I’ve heard of in PEI. The high winds didn’t help.  The converse of the extra-high tide is an extra-low tide, which we noticed around supper time.

Looking North

Looking North – the shore is the part that’s reflecting on the right and the mottled part in the middle. The river is flowing on the left.

Looking North from closer to the bridge: the shore and river are more obvious in this photo.

This post is late for the WordPress Photo Challenge of April 1 on the subject of Landscape and you can see other entries here.

Looking west

Looking west – Not so much a photo of the low tide, but you can see a gravel bar on the far side of the river and if you click on the photo to enlarge it you will notice a lone Canada Goose (we think it’s injured) in the river current.

This post is also for the iPhriday challenge begun by Gray Days and Coffee. You can look for other iPhriday participants by searching for the category or the tags.  The three wide photos were taken on an iPhone 6 using Hueless and edited in Lightroom on an iMac and the fourth was taken with the iPhone Camera.

It looks and feels like November. The temperature has been yo-yo-ing between 10 Celsius (50F) and just below zero (Celsius) for about 10 days. We have very little snow left and ice in our tidal river is moving back and forth with the tides.

I needed some air after editing the photos from my first day of the Photo Workshop I attended in Havana. There was a cold damp wind but Martha the Maremma provided some warm company.  This house is one of the typical styles you will find on Prince Edward Island; the dog was sniffing for wildlife under the porch.

She was waiting to see if another neighbourhood dog was in the car that had just gone by. It was, and so she was off to socialize with it. I turned and went back home.

Ever vigilant.

Ever vigilant.
