Hopewell Rocks Low Tide Wall (Canada) • PhotoTraces


Once I entered the Hopewell Rock coastal park within the morning, the tide was nonetheless at its highest degree for the day. All of the entrances to the seashore had been closed. The one approach to entry the coastal space was to lease a kayak and paddle across the rocks as a result of the whole coastal space was submerged beneath 10 meters of water.

My objective was to discover and {photograph} the Hopewell Rocks when the low tide exposes the rock formations and you’ve got distinctive alternatives to {photograph} the realm from the underside of the ocean.

I had a fast lunch and by the midday park employees began to let individuals to the seashore space. It took the featured photograph at 12:30 and it was nonetheless moist and muddy on the seashore, however I didn’t complain as a result of it was nonetheless comparatively empty with not too many individuals round.
