Okay,,,sit down,this could be a bit,,lol...

Since there is little chance most of you will come this way anytime soon,,,i`m going to show you a major attraction to my home Province,New Brunswick.....Canada..

It is called the Hopewell Rocks....also having the highest tides in the world....

The tides rise at a rate of 6-8 feet an hour along this shore,,,to an average of 32-46 feet from low tide...but has reached just over 50 feet high in our records.....

Okay,,,first pic is low tide,,,or close to it,,,i was not able to get there at exactly the right moments,,but i did try...i made this trip to take these pics for this forum,,as i`ve seen this lots before....the "Rocks" of course are like flower pots,,and are usually referred to as such....the force of the water going in and out has erroded the soft material away,,leaving these standing..

Now this shot is pretty much at high tide....

low tide again...............

high tide again....

Now after you looked at these,,,go to this link for a bunch more from that attraction,,hope you guy`s/girl`s enjoy them......oh,,,,when you click the link,,,the 4th pic across of the ROCK is called ET,,,,,i think you`ll see why...

Thanks Brian, I've never seen anything like the photos you took, they are very good and unusual. Is the water muddy like it appears to be?

Awesome set of shots, Brian. That is a cool looking place. Wish I lived close to it, I'd like to see it in person. I see why that rock is called ET, LOL.

Thanks for sharing.
