One of the last composites I ever made in the darkroom. This is actually a triple burn. I used part of an image I took in Peggy’s Cove. There were so many birds around yet I didn’t capture any in the frames I shot. The sea gull was from an image captured in Lake worth Florida and the other birds were from a picture taken in the Bay of Fundy on Rugby Neck NS.
The image was created in my darkroom in State College PA.
I am going to be posting images that I may have posted before with a candidate # thereby collecting a list of what I feel would be likely candidates to print for a gallery show of Photojournalism. This one was taken at high tide at Digby Neck on The Bay of Fundy in Nova Scotia in the early 1980″s. Please feel free to leave comments if you agree or disagree about including them in a “best of” list.
A long time ago we camped at Digby Neck on the Bay of Fundy in Nova Scotia. The trip marked a lot of firsts for us; the first time we saw the northern lights, the first time I ate Digby Chicken which is a giant scallops grilled and served on a hamburger bun and also the first time we saw the highest tides in the world. We went swimming in the frigid bay in the afternoon and the boats at this dock were all on a ramp some 30 feet below the dock. This is the same dock at high tide. You can see other images and buy prints and apparel at my commercial gallery.
