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!

Rough Seas !

After a day of drenching drizzle and rain I headed down to Bass Rocks then over to the Dog Bar Breakwater to see how the surf was doing. It was doing well as the tide was retreating, but small craft had a tough time negotiating the swells.

Big rollers head in!

Crash on the rocks!


More rollers!

Getting too close!

Waves move in!

"Michael & Kristen" heads out!

Cutting through!

Getting closer to home!

Retreating waters!

Breaching the breakwater!

All I know is thank god I didn't have to be out in one of those boats! Not for me, nope. Those certainly are rough seas, but quite beautiful too.

Btw, that's an awesome shot at the top of the page of the Eastern Point Lighthouse!

Thanks Sharon! I was on the breakwater when those boats went by and had to keep an eye on the surf...If not I could become lobster bait!

Frank said...

Great shots Jay. What are you nuts walking the breakwater in weather like that? (I've done it many times myself)..........LOL

I saw the waves breaking towards Magnolia and desparately wanted to go out shooting, but alas, I had to work yesterday.

What wonderful lighting!

Jay Albert said...

The clouds were retreating as I got to the breakwater. I guess timing is everything with lighting!When I walked out on the breakwater and looked back at the lighthouse it was almost as if God moved the clouds back with his hand and said "Quick...snap some pictures now"!

A New England Life said...

Your like Moses or something, only the sky parts instead of the sea! LOL! Glad you weren't lobster bait.

"Glosta Logic"

It's not "soda" and not "pop" or even "soda pop" it's "tonic"!
It's a "rotary" not a "roundabout"!
"Going up the line" is a term used when leaving the island!
A "jigga"is a homemade powerless go-cart!
It's not "Break Time or Coffee Break" it's "Mug-up"!
It's not a "water fountain" it's a "Bubbla"!
