Kosti Ruohomaa started photographing the extreme tides in the Bay of Fundy for an earlier assignment in 1949 for Life magazine when he documented gill net fishermen working in the brief and dangerous moment just before the tide comes in, which Kosti described as “grand adventure.” (99) He returned to the Bay of Fundy later to take this series. The photos in this series include the Reversing Tide at Saint John’s, the Tidal Bore on the Petitcodiac River in Moncton, and the tide-worn rocks at Hopewell Cape.
