Nova Scotia Trip Gallery

I remember long ago when anyone would go on a road trip there would be a gathering later on to view their slides from the trip. That just isn't done any more and this gallery on Zenfolio, with it's slide show feature, is about as close as it gets these days. You can view the 145 photo gallery at

I noted previously that I shot 1,804 files on the trip. I used all three bodies and all six lenses I brought with me.

Here are some photos I'm just processing today as, while on the trip, I looked for six to eight shots that could describe each day.

Nova Scotia Trip Day 7 - The Final Chapter

I'm ending the daily posts today. Tomorrow is the five and a half hour ferry trip followed by a four plus hour drive home. I'm planning on a break from photography.

Between my three camera bodies, I shot 1,804 files, mostly bracketed images with the 5D Mark III. Of course, it's not the camera work, it's the computer work that gets tiring. Sometime when I haven't had a chance to get out with the camera I'll enjoy working with some of the files I'm not dealing with at this point.

Today's trip included three lighthouses, another colonial fort, and some decent scenes of the Bay of Fundy's gigantic tides. There a lot more I could include but here is a decent representative sample.

Nova Scotia Trip Day 6

Today's journey was from Halifax across to Wolfville, a community located along the shores of the Minas Basin which is part of the Bay of Fundy, home to the world's highest tides. There are lots of trails right from town along the shore and on the top of dykes which protect farm land from the ocean water.

Low tide was at 2:38 PM Atlantic time and high tide was at 9:00 PM. I've organized these photos to show some low(ish) tide photos and some high(ish) tide photos of the same general scene. Captions will show the time.
