"Morning Mist"

Oh Lord, won't you buy me a Mercedes Benz!

Janis comes to mind, when on Grand Manan Island, lost in the middle of the Bay of Fundy, and on a lot of old disused smokehouses, someone had abandoned there for many years, his Mercedes with the keys in ignition. Like a ghost on this small misty Island with the smells of sea mists and with sound behind, the fog horn of the '' Swallowtail Lighthouse ''.

I still remember the salty smell of the sea winds of this enchanted island lost in the center of the highest tides in the world. This photo was taken at dawn, before the fresh dew disappeared, with the first ray of sunlight as lighting. We had to sleep right next to it in our little truck, hosted on the old smokehouse grounds of Seal Cove, by friendly residents. Only one path on this island and about 2,300 inhabitants, one grocery store and one gas station. Lost at sea but a haven of peace to be found.
