. New Brunswick
Jemseg, New Brunswick, the Saint John River is joined by the short Jemseg River, which empties New Brunswick’s largest lake, . Grand Lake
Saint John River becomes broad and shallow, meandering through many low islands used for pastureland during the dryer periods of summer and fall.
These photos were taken at a spot near
where the old Route 105 splits off briefly from Route 2, the Trans Canada Highway. Jemseg, New Brunswick
I love the way the trees and marshy ground slip away from the main flow and considerable breadth and depth of the
Saint John River, creating quiet reflective waters. Suddenly, here is a place where sunlight and shadow play to create peaceful photo opportunities. It is possible to capture whole and broken trees, dying Queen Anne’s Lace, autumn leaves back lit against the water meadows.
This hushed watery location is an enchanting respite from the tedium of endless miles of highway driving through the woodlands of central
; a bewitching stretch of river, a tranquil place to stop and appreciate all of nature's wonders, great and small. Blessed be. New Brunswick
And blessed be.

what beautiful photos, Carol, I love wandering along rivers in the autumn
water meadows, what an interesting phrase with such beautiful photos
Sometimes I am in the right place at the right time and photo magic just happens. It is truly a lovely place to stop to enjoy the scenery.
