Bay of Fundy in January

In the Maritimes its a slow time of year when you hit the Winter months. With Winter, comes the inevitable Winter blue and it sucks. This Winter started pretty nasty around the Holidays with several snow storms blanketing the area. Coming into January 2014, we got a few days of reprieve with above normal temperatures. I decided to hit the road to try to snap myself out of this Winter torpor. Here's a few photos:

Joggins, Nova Scotia

From Hardscrabble road heading South. You can see the Joggins Fossil Center on the left.

The force of the bay is so great that it just piles ice and creates this awesome scenery.

Fossil cliffs at Joggins down Lower Cove. Not easily accessible in Winter and very dangerous.

View from the bridge down Shulie road, overlooking the old road structures.

Chunks of ice covery most of the beach. Hard to walk and tricky to step on. Glad to see a few patches of rocky ground to step on.

Alma, New Brunswick

Coming down from Fundy Park we noticed this rainbow. It was about 6 degrees Celcius and there were some scattered showers that didn't last very long. A few drizzles really.

Alma wharf.

My older brother Don trying to have a photo showdown.

I get easily distracted.

Nice view of the beach from the road. Here in Alma the beach is mostly cleared of ice.

Carboniferous bearing cliffs seen here in the background.
