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!

Tall Ships and Tall Water!

The "Gateway Endeavor" a LNG support vessel is also capable for fighting fires at sea. With two powerful water cannons each able to push out 950 gallons of water per second! But for the 25th Annual Gloucester Schooner Festival she provided the "Waterworks"! Breathtaking comes to mind when seeing her two powerful water cannons as the schooner fleet sails by.

"American Eagle" yet to deploy the main!

"Spirit of Bermuda" leads other schooners!

"Lewis H. Story" heads out!

"Virginia" bow on!

Spirit of Bermuda" heads out!

"Spirit of Bermuda" off breakwater!

"Liberty Clipper" bow on!

"Roseway" and "Perception" off Eastern Point Light!

"Gateway Endeavor" powers up water cannons!

Sooo-eet! Many of the ships did not deploy full sails in the harbor. Great shots of the Spirit of Bermuda.

Hi Jay, wonderful images. I think next year I might come down to view the schooners myself. I have to confess, I feel like a little kid when I see the water cannons shooting into the air. Something about it is just so cool!

I was down in Gloucester myself this afternoon with my husband. We went to Halibut point and then the very touristy Rockport. LOL! Pretty town but it's about about tourism which is kind of sad. Wonderful gardens though.

After that we had a few minutes so we stopped in on the fishing pier parking area. The one with the little traffic circle on it. I took a few shots of the Peacemaker turning around, along with some of the dock workers, before I was hustled out of there to get home. Maybe one day we'll be able to just take our time when we go someplace!
