Canada - April 14th, 2012

Striking copper-colored sediments can be observed in the Bay of Fundy, on the Atlantic coast of North America. The gulf is located on the northeast end of the Gulf of Maine between the Canadian provinces of New Brunswick and Nova Scotia, with a small portion touching the U.S. state of Maine. The bay is famous for having the highest tidal range in the world. Here, the copper-colored sediments are most concentrated in two inlets: Cobequid Bay (right) and Cognecto Bay (left).
