The Japanese defense forces couldn't stop Godzilla.....I captured the beast!
Spied this over Route 128 on my way home from work. Dirty windshield and strong sun glare I had to darken the image and crop out the sun. That's the only edit to what's probably my worse quality image. I figured some would get a kick out of it so I posted the pic on facebook. A few shares later it's gone world wide! Who would of thunk it?

Why I created this......

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. For that reason 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!

Tragedy At Sea !



Little did I know that on a clear day such as this drama was unfolding 15 miles off Gloucester. The 54' fishing vessel "Patriot" had gone down with both crewmen aboard. I was out taking pictures when I saw the Coast Guard Jayhawk approaching Station Gloucester. Thinking it was another training exercise I clicked away when I discovered back home.... they were actually bringing in the victims. Two more of "The Finest Kind" lost to the sea.

Jay, I've been away from your blog for too long. What a terrible tragedy for the families of the two fisherman. It's not on the news up here but I see it's on the boston news websites. I know nothing about fishing or fisherman but I can't imagine being out to sea on a freezing cold, windy day like today.

Your photo's are amazing! I LOVE the call of the wild. And the shot of the water coming out of the boat is so simple yet it's great. All of them are excellent.

What kind of ducks are those in the bottom picture?

Sharon,
Sad day in Gloucester. I found out it was a father of one and another on the way and his father-in-law who were lost at sea.
I'm no bird expert but I believe the duck are Common Eiders.

Isn't that awful. I can't even imagine something so terrible.

Hi Jay,

Best,
Nate

Thanks Nate !
The "sea ducks" are difficult to "capture". They are skiddish even when I'm on my boat,those two I was lucky....I was on the dock when they appeared from behind a boat. When they saw me they turned tail and that's when I "caught" them!
