Description The Hopewell Rocks, also called the Flowerpot Rocks, are rock formations caused by tidal erosion in The Rocks Provincial Park in New Brunswick.They are located on the shores of the upper reaches of the Bay of Fundy at Hopewell Cape near Moncton, New Brunswick. Due to the extreme tidal range of the Bay of Fundy, the base of the formations are covered in water twice a day. However, it is possible to view the formations from ground level at low tide.The formations consist of dark sedimentary conglomerate and sandstone rock. The large volume of water flowing in to and out of the Bay of Fundy modifies the landscape surrounding it. After the retreat of the glaciers in the region following the last ice age, surface water filtering through cracks in the cliff has eroded and separated the formations from the rest of the cliff face. Meanwhile, advancing and retreating tides and the associated waves have eroded the base of the rocks at a faster rate than the tops, resulting in their unusual shapes.
Amanda White, UK Member Since October 2009 Artist Statement Amanda White C.P.A.G.B.
Welcome. I am a full time Graphic Designer and a part-time photographer. My love of photography has always existed but has only really developed seriously since 2005, I was published 4 times nationally during that year in Digital Camera Magazine and came 3rd in their ‘Photographer of the Year’ Competition in the Altered Images category.
Inspired by my initial success I proceeded to upgrade my camera to a modest DSLR and haven’t looked back since. In 2008 I attained the first merit award of the Photographic Alliance of Great Britain, which earned me the initials after my name. the subjects I shoot are eclectic, and my post processing techniques vary wildly as I love to experiment and don’t like to be pigeon-holed.
