Dawn on the Water

Taken just after dawn, the water was almost as smooth as glass. Post processing was done to give the photo an aged look to warm it up and add a timeless sense to the photo.

A macro shot of my new wrist watch. I used a 70-200L lens coupled with extension tubes to get this close-up shot. The detail is incredible with this setup.

I wanted to use Microsoft’s Seadragon/Deep Zoom to show this in all its glorious detail, but they just changed their server to show only albums, not the single photos. 🙁 You can see this photo (and others) in my DeepZoomPix album here

Fishing Boats in St. Martins (Panorama)

Fishing boats resting on the mud at low tide in St. Martins, New Brunswick. This is a high-resolution panorama, scroll inside the image to zoom.

This post is an experiment using Microsoft’s Seadragon technology. By scrolling and panning inside the image, you can zoom in or out to reveal much more detail.

Low Tide

I took a drive out to St. Martin’s (New Brunswick, not the Carribean unfortunately) last weekend to try and see a little more maritime scenery than is available in Saint John. St. Martin is on the Bay of Fundy which is famous for having the highest tides in the world. I got there around low tide, and was amazed to see the boats were completely out of the water. At high tide they would be floating along side the docks. The Bay of Fundy apparently has areas with 50 foot tides. That is quite amazing.

The water shown in this image is actually a small river. I was standing on the bank of the river with the ocean about 100 meters behind me as I took the photo. If it were high tide, I’d have been in about 10 feet of water!
