Tantramar river and marsh in winter.

A remarkable winter phenomenon visible along the coast and rivers of the Bay of Fundy region is the presence of winter ice that moves about the shore with each tide or which can be thrown up onto the adjacent land surfaces by storms. This scene is typical of this pattern though it does not reveal the embedded red mud that so often characterizes the ice pans or frozen exposed river bed at low tide. Through persistent freeze-thaw cycles the latter water-landscapes gives rise to chocolate-coloured ice sculptures when exposed.
