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!

Gulls and Stuff!

Some day go down to the waterfront and watch the gulls. You'll be amazed at their grace as they swoop, glide and dance in the sky. I'm no bird watcher but couldn't help appreciate the way they command the sky and for years took them for granted. 


The call of the wild!
 Rate of climb.
 I'm taking a chance getting this shot!
 Proud profile!

Fog, Waves and Sunsets!

Fog can be magical depending on the subject while storms have their own character. Sunsets over a body of water is hard to beat but they all have their own challenges.

Hurricane Irene August 28 2011 !

After reviewing some of my files I came across images from Hurricane Irene I took back on 8/28/11. The storm brushed our coast providing an awesome show of power. We were lucky, only a few trees were toppled, minor flooding and sporadic power outages effected Cape Ann. It's always good to remind us all that Mother Nature can surprise and put peoples lives in danger. Never tempt her and always be aware of your surroundings. High surf can sweep the unexpected away and can pelt you with large rocks and debris. All these images were shot with a telephoto lens from a safe distance.

Back at the Beach !

I just think of all those missed days before I was into photography and never appreciated the light here on Cape Ann. There's making up to do and  the second weekend in a row we had another one of those perfect timing conditions. Though a small T-storm pretty much missed us it did leave it's calling card with a rainbow and pastel skies at sunset. All these photos were taken in less than two hours time.



Good Harbor Beach

Look close and you'll see a double rainbow.

A close look.
