Sky Watch Over the Tantramar


In this region, once called Beaubassin, the Acadians settlers built dikes in the early 1700's along these salt water marshes. Today this area is called the Tantramar Marshes. The name Tantramar was derived from the Acadian French word 'tintamarre' meaning 'din or racket', in reference to the noise made by the many birds that feed there. (source Wikipedia) The Tantramar Marshes are located near Sackville, NB.

Let me tell you that your top photo is excellent and would work in dozens of places. I really like it. You got it all -- from perspective to contrast, and color harmony.

I love these photos. The first shot is absolutely perfect, beautifully composed. That second shot is amazing, and I think it's my favorite. The sky is so heavy and ominous in that one -- it's gorgeous and dramatic. Great shots!
