West Quaco Cottages, Fundy Coast, NB

Since I'm a roll (?), let me continue. This summer our family rented a cottage in beautiful West Quaco/St. Martin's, New Brunswick. Only half an hour from St. John's NB, it was situated right on the Bay of Fundy, and proved to be a most relaxing holiday. Aside from the occasional car passing, all we could hear was the wind, birds and faintly, at night, the ocean. The Bay of Fundy is considered one of the Wonders of the World, and certainly of Canada. We enjoyed ourselves so much we are thinking of going back next year to exactly the same spot.
I recently began to experiment with HDR photography (see previous post), and so the next few posts will be HDR images - typically three to five images combined in Photomatix followed by post processing in CS3. I'm just learning this technique but having lots of fun with it. You can create images that are simply impossible to create with 'straight' photography short of very very advanced PS work = lots of time.

The photo above was taken from the beach looking back towards the cottages in West Quaco, at sunset.
