Snow cliffs ~ thick & furious

Luckily for the Canada Games, now taking place in our region, we've had an unusual amount of snow this winter. The Bay of Fundy is in the 'snow belt' on the east coast of Canada anyway but even still there are many years when the snow comes late and melts early.

This year's significant accumulation makes for some interesting sights as the winter photo series here on my blog illuminates. Top among these sights are steep, craggy Bay of Fundy cliffs blasted with a thick layer of snowy sediment, such as those pictured here.

This lucky shot taken a few days ago in Parrsboro, Nova Scotia: high tide local cove in the foreground and Cape Blomidon - 8km across the Minas Channel - in the distance.
