Photographer's Note

Belleisle Bay is an extension of the Saint John River, the most notable waterway in New Brunswick. The region is rural and sparsely populated, with potato farming giving way to dairying and food crops. This area is the domain of water fowl, of bears and moose, the latter animal being a real hazard on highways, with at least a handful of people every year killed in collisions with these multi ton creatures. Tall grasses are fragrant in the water meadows and ferns and wildflowers abound. This is a hunter's and fisherman's paradise. The region is about equally distant from the huge urban centres of Montreal and Boston, but fortunately lies largely undiscovered as a rural backwater, largely undisturbed by the depravities of man's polluting ways.
