Born and raised in Gloucester,Ma fishing gets in your blood. Surrounded by the sea, kids here have a boat almost as much as kids elsewhere have bicycles! As I grew older my fishing ambitions gave way to what's around me. Although I still "drop a line" every so often, my attention wanders to the majesty of the natural light that make this place so special. Never is each day the same. The subjects may be the same but the light from the sea & sky will morph the subject into a form of art. Artists have been drawn to these shores for several hundred years,they followed the light painting and sketching these surroundings. What artists capture with paint on canvas, I attempt to capture with a click.....if I'm lucky!
I guess that's a sort of Fish'n!

Late Sunday afternoon I decided to take advantage of the longer day and head to Rockport . After stopping at the harbor and Pigeon Cove it was over to Lanes Cove in the Lanseville section of Gloucester.
Fresh fallen snow at sunset produces interesting scenes. Like most posts here I didn't plan it that way. While I took my dog out to do her thing, I noticed the light from the sky. Orange,blue and pink pastel colors above so I gathered my camera and headed off.
The meteorologists had it wrong! Most said we'd get hit with a blizzard and 12+ inches of snow. Well we did get snow and wind but the average snow fall in my yard was 5 inches. The timing was bad for me, I had to drive to work in the middle of the so called blizzard. Instead of taking the highway I choose to leave about an hour and a half early and take the shore route. It was messy and the drive averaged about 20 mph but I made it on time with time to spare. Crews along the North Shore did a great job and for the most part the roads were clear for my ride home. I decided to go home the same route and see what photo ops I could come upon. But I start below with a few shots from the week.

Senator Scott Brown demands ouster of NOAA Administrator Jane Lubchenco!
Scott Brown: " “NOAA won’t stop until this statue right here will be the last fisherman standing in Massachusetts.”
Lets not forget all the injured and those who lost their lives at the Boston Marathon bombings because of this senseless act! Whatever their sick horrific intent was, their killing and chaos has made the USA even stronger! And I hope the world notices!
And yes I remember!
