Very interesting capture. So how tall is the wave? Hard to tell without a "surfer" in there for perspective.

Very cool shot, nice to see a bore on a river other than on the Severn or Parrett (the river that runs thru my town). Note: There is a supermoon in September which should produce some large bores! Congrats on blue.

I just learned that this bore tide takes approximately 6 hours to make its journey up the inlet and Turnagain Arm. Understandable considering the distance from start to end. Thanks, all, for the wonderful comments and VIP slot.

What fun! I've watched the tidal bore in the Bay of Fundy, and it's like a wall of water walking into the land. Very cool!

About robb04047


I have a full time job during the day which deals with workforce optimization. I have been fortunate to travel the country as well as Europe and Asia. My Frequent Flyer Miles replaced an old Minolta SLR that was stolen 20 years ago. I used my miles and purchased the Canon T1i. It was love at first click. Taking pictures helps me forget about all the bad things in the world. Photography forces you to focus solely on the intimate beauty of nature.
