Beauty of a Place



























Photos taken along the Bay of Fundy Coast, on the ocean floor and/or with full tide,
 at St. Martins, Duck Pond Road, Gardener Creek, and Tynemouth Creek...
It's all about the Nature of the Place.

Wonderful photo's that have captured my imagination and I can see why you are so fond of the area.
Thank you so much publishing them.

Guillaume said...

Oh, that's why...

Gwen Buchanan said...

You're Very welcome guys... but you knew that's why, already, didn't you?

Linda H said...

And beautiful it IS!!!

Sara O'Leary said...

Beautiful, Gwen!

Valerianna said...

Beautiful place!

Looks like some of the same reasons I love Maine, though in a rougher, higher-cliffed more pronounced way. Love that the covered bridge has a pedestrian walkway through it! Happy collection of dogs, sweet.
Just lit a fire in the jotul - rainy, cool and cozy eve.

Gwen Buchanan said...

Hi Linda, perhaps you will find your way to the shore again next year.

Thanks Sara, nice to see your face! Hope all's well. xo

Hi Valerianna, the air actually felt like fall for the first time today, but we haven't lit the woodstoves yet.. Still keeping the windows open.

A little piece of heaven.

Marie Alton said...

You are sooo lucky my dear ... to have this gem of a place as your home. Photos are awesome & totally convey why this is your heaven. I'm so jealous!

Hugs ... Marie

Are you curious about me? said...

What an amazing place.. Thanks for sharing the photo's Gwen, so lovely to see what the rest of the world is like.. So many wondrous places.

Thank goodness that we live in this age of technology as I would never have seen your Bay of Fundy.. It looks very open to the ocean, I bet that you have amazing storms? Perhaps you have some photo's tucked away somewhere.. I'd love to see those too..

I live in Essex, along the River Colne, we are protected from the North Sea storms..Great in many ways, sad because I don't get to see any.. I love wild weather..

Have a good weekend.. ~ Julie.

one image reminded me that treasure number 49 on the Map of Treasures in Rebecca Solnits wonderful book Infinite City is....FOG.

Gwen Buchanan said...

Robyn, I show too many pictures of this amazing beauty but I am under it's Spell.

Marie, There is enough wide open space for everyone to think without their minds getting clogged.

Julie, I love sharing these places.. We have a storm upon us today, gray, blustery, rain. xoxo

India, The foggy days are to die for .. and they are all different...
This is early one morning when fog blanketed the harbor... http://gwenbuchanan.blogspot.ca/2012/07/foggy-day-in-st-martins.html

Susan said...

beautiful, beautiful, beautiful !!
the Bay of Fundy is an amazing and magnificent place (our NS side too) + happy, happy dogs ;-) I grew up in Sackville, NB not sure if you knew that Gwen - still hoping to take a fall day trip to visit you & your area. Much love xo les Gang

Gwen Buchanan said...

That would be lovely Susan... there will still be plenty of gorgeous fall days left this season for travelling..

...wow, no, I never knew you grew up in NB.. Sackville is so picturesque.

I should have taken fresh water to the shore for the dogs ...they got so thirsty and there was only salt water.

all the best to the gang, xo

Gwen Buchanan said...

Hi Seth and Tracy... it is one of those places on earth where space is your best friend.

George said...

Great photos, Gwen! What an incredibly beautiful place you have chosen for your life.

Gwen Buchanan said...

Honestly, George, It chose us.. it cast its net and there was nothing we could do.

pauline said...

Gwen Buchanan said...

Awwww Pauline, that is sweet! My eyes are greedy for it and I can never pack enough of these scenes into them..

louciao said...

Scenically gorgeous. A truly special little corner of the world. Obviously, you walk in beauty.

Gwen Buchanan said...

Beauty exists everywhere.. Hopefully some day I will have the opportunity to explore other places secrets.

Thanks Sandy!

These are utterly lovely. I enjoyed the memories these called back for me. As I sat looking at your photos, I felt myself smiling and noticed I was humming to myself. How can anyone not love this place?

dixiebelle said...

Nature is heaven to those who appreciate the beauty and serenity of it.....

I've enjoyed perusing your photo's.

Gwen Buchanan said...

Thank you Dixiebelle, you are so right...Nature attaches itself to ones very soul. I appreciate that your visit... please come again.

rivergardenstudio said...

Beautiful photographs of your world, Gwen. I love the scattered houses, the water's colour, the beach walking and the church steeple. Very thoughtful and quiet.

Gwen Buchanan said...

Roxanne, yes these are quiet aren't they.. I hadn't particularly tried for that but I tend to stay away from places where there are crowds.

I always go to the quiet places.
