“Bay of Fundy Surf” – Saint John, New Brunswick
“So slip on your goggles and your reading trunks, for the sun is high. Let me leave you with one more thought. In what season of the year do we find ourselves – I’m speaking for a moment in terms of the physical world – wading through things? Surf. Kelp. Books. Summer.”
― Roy Blount Jr.
This photo is not my usual style, but I love water, moving water, and I especially love the sound of surf on a beach.
As I strolled the beach at Irving Nature Park, near Saint John, New Brunswick, I made several images of the waves rolling in, looking for a certain ‘feel’. This particular image captured that feel for me.
I can feel the power of the bay, see the sky reflected, bright and blue on the water’s surface, and hear the sound as the wave crests, sprays mist into the air, crashes on the sand, and flows back to its source. The wave is coming in, and going out at the same moment. A pattern, repeated for millennia, yet always appealing to me.
