Low tide in the Bay of Fundy
As shown in the two previous pictures of the same area: The picture on the left is taken when the tide is in and the picture on the right is taken when the tide is out.
The Bay of Fundy has the highest tides in the world and fills and empties a billion tonnes of water twice everyday during each tide cycle.
The height of the tide  ranges from 3.5 meters (11ft)  up the 280 km (174 miles) of shoreline. The height of the tide can reach an incredible 16 meters (53ft).
Check out this website for more information about these incredible tides:
