Tide out: ice-glazed mud

I'm still adjusting to my new camera but there's one feature I liked immediately - the high res optical zoom. Previously, great little coves like this were tricky to capture; this is Diligent River harbour at half tide. That's ice-glazed mud in the foreground, a flat band of receding tide across the middle and, of course, Cape Split in the background...about 10 km across the mighty Minas Channel (proposed tidal energy zone in the upper Bay of Fundy).

Hi Terri,
Beautiful Composition. My husband is a artist & loves painting maritime landscapes with lots of aerial perspective. This would make a beautiful painting!

This view of Cape Split from Dilgent River is so awesome.

I found out about it from local artist, Arlis Collins.
