— comes from photographer Martin Greene (who’s generously shared his photos with us before).
About this one Martin writes: “This is the Bay of Fundy, on the Altantic Coast of Nova Scotia. It has the world’s highest and lowest tides, each twice per day. This photo shows it at low tide when boats are land locked and one can walk out along the beach great distances.”
Martin’s website has some extraordinary shots from his recent photographic safari in Tanzania, including a charging elephant which must have tested his sang-froid (it certainly would have tested mine). But he stood his ground and got his photos — including hippos (my favorite) and lions and zebras, oh my!
