Looks like the same picture twice. Looks just like Moncton
Can't find a pic from the air so...

I'd love to know how they get that nice reflection in a very brown river.

No idea why its linking to the same photo, the links are different and when I copy/paste it takes me to the correct photo.

Weird.

The above link should work for the 2nd photo.

I suppose someone could have mirrored it in some way and then started making a few changes, rubbing out a bit here and there.

This is how it looks in daytime just to the right of the part in the other pic.

Saving the girl from the head-choppers; will Canada and Australia fight over her? I hope she comes here, and we're already at odds with Saudi Arabia so it's all good.

No offers from Trump? That would be a feather in his cap.

That looks to be tidal?

Catch it at the right point with no current, no wind, good reflections will be there, no need for expensive software...

Yes, it's tidal. There's a bore and some people travel from afar to surf on it. Honestly, though, it's barely a ripple compared to the Severn bore.

But it really is very brown. Not known as the chocolate river for nothing.
