In 1981 we traveled to Nova Scotia. Those were the days of film photography and although I did some monochrome, mostly I shot 35mm color transparency film. I don’t have too many of the slides left. I either lost or had two trays of slides stolen some time in the 1980’s. I have shared some of the survivors; High Tide in Bay Of Fundy and Peggy’s Cove. This is one of the monochrome images from that trip.
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.

Peggy’s Cove is a beautiful and picturesque village south of Halifax and North of Lunenburg along the Atlantic Ocean. You can certainly see how Nova Scotia (New Scotland) earned it’s name from this particular stretch of rugged coastline. Normally there is a fog covering the area providing interesting lighting challenges for Photographers. You can buy a print of this image on my commercial site by clicking here.
This photograph is a combination of darkroom magic, coupled with digital magic. The original was created in the darkroom blending two monochrome images. One, a shot of Peggy’s Cove Nova Scotia, the other of gulls in flight over Lake Worth Florida. Th original image image was scanned at 600 DPI and colorized with two masks in GIMP.
