Here’s a tip for anyone contemplating going to Hopewell Rocks hoping to get good photos: go during the first low tide of the day.
I set my alarm for 6 am…and then at 6 am proceeded to turn it off and sleep until 8:00. Thus, we ended up heading out to Hopewell Rocks during the second low tide of the day, which was at 7 pm. Well, guess what? That’s a crappy time to take photos. To your east, you have the Bay of Fundy; to the west, a giant cliff. Guess where the sun is? Behind the cliff. Duh. But we did manage to find this one flowerpot rock that was still bathed in sunlight, and I did manage to find an angle that worked. Whew!
Aside from the trip to Hopewell Rocks, we also did two different hikes today, one rather strenuous. I’m beat!
