Alisia’s travel theme of the week is texture – what fun.
I have been going through my photos taken during our trip to the Maritime Provinces of Canada and wondering how to use those that I enjoy but haven’t fit into any of my themed posts. Enter Alisia’s theme.
I love this one because of the various textures that frame the texture of the jutting rock. This was taken at Meat Point at the north end of Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia.
Of course in the Maritime Provinces, the primary themes are the contrasting textures of land and water. The next two Photos were taken from a boat off of North Point at the northern most part of Cape Breton Island.
In these photos, the textures of land and water meeting is deceptively calm, but the hardness of the rock says that it can meet the force of water with firm resolve creating a tempest of texture in our imagination.
The next photo is from the mouth of the Bay of Fundy when the tide is going out. The color created by the varying depth as the water level lowers creates new textures on the water. How much softer the meeting of land and water is here.
This last scene is of the mouth of the Saint Lawrence River in Quebec. The soft textures of sky and sea meet with only a hint of land between.
