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. 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!

The World's Largest Lobster Trap Christmas Tree !

It was cold for the annual lighting of this years Gloucester Lobster Trap Christmas Tree! So cold I think it effected the battery of my camera. I could only get about 10 shots before the battery died...and it was fully charged before I left the house! I should know better, the battery is as old as the camera and I don't have a back up! Did you read that Santa?

Thank you plaque!

Whats on the inside of the tree Jay, do you know? Yeah, it looks cold. Everyone is bundled right up.

Hopefully Santa is listening when you say you need a battery! I need one too Santa!

Awesome 'tree'!

Sharon asks:"Whats on the inside of the tree Jay, do you know?"
Lobster traps & space! There's room to hold a small Christmas party in there if you could get in! It's like a big native american teepee without the support poles.

I thought the tree might have some support inside.

Chances are with the smell you wouldn't want to have a party in the middle. Ha!
