moon and tide

This body of water, in these two photos, is normally not there. There’s grass … marshland.

Saint John is one of the places, that experience the highest tides in the world. When we get the, so called, supermoon, that I wrote about a few days ago, the tides get even higher. So what you see here, is high tide in Saints’ Rest Mash. ย Normally, at high tide, there are merely puddles.

I changed the title of this blog to Time & Tide, because the tide is a big thing here. Could perhaps have called it Fog & Tide, but I guess I have a thing for allitterations ๐Ÿ˜€ Secondly, this summer has been so kind to me, so I didn’t feel the need to beg for ‘colder weather’ any more [still love the song, though].

DSC_3192This last perigee moon, which is the scientific name for it, was the first time I’ve gotten some photos of it. The previous times, it has either been partly overcast, or I just haven’t been out. The closer to the horizon you manage to get the photos, the bigger it looks. I was in awe, when I saw the very first, deep pink, slice of it, coming up!

    Love this moon rise pic. Looks like the moon’s being cradled by the steam and the colours are so rich: ).
    I notice the Golden Rod in the foreground of the right-hand photo looks like it may be (almost?) ready for the honey harvesters… Does this seem a little early to you, this year?

      Thank you ๐Ÿ™‚ Funny you should mention the Golden Rod! I don’t know much about it, more than the name. Sometimes I’ve wondered if it exists in Sweden, but never got around to check it out. Today, a Swedish photographer had posted a photo of Golden Rod in FB ๐Ÿ˜€

      So … I wouldn’t know if it’s early!
