“Wish you were here” – Postcard from Maine #9

Summary – An animated GIF image of Bass Harbor’s tide from low to high (10+ feet) as seen from my rental’s back yard. The world’s first animated e-postcard with music. 😉


Roll mouse over postcard to see the tide animation

Ebb Tide

Images start with low tide near 6 AM

End with high tide near noon

Sunrise is at my back

Dawn until noon accounts for the different lighting

Would be better on an overcast day – even light

There’s a tidal range of about 10 feet

The Bay of Fundy, a bit north of here, sees 50 feet
