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!

Angry Seas !

Spring hung around way to long and Summer wasn't Summer for long. Now it looks likes Autumn is gonna skip into winter! With temps in the 30's and 40's and a biting wind the last few days feels like winter!

There were pretty impressive rollers today. With the new moon, the wind and the storm surge, the high tide was righ up to the foot of the Birdseye building on Pavilion Beach today.

The wind is a killer! My hands were numb and when I got home I noticed the pump hose in my fish pond came loose. I had to plunge my hand past my elbow in the water to fix it. About 3 hours later I got the feeling back!

Great shots of some incredible surf! Somewhat remanisant of Hurricane Bills visit. I think the waves look all the more dramatic along such a beautiful rocky coast.

What's flying through the air in the shot titled 'Foam'? Over on the right. Do you think it's seaweed?

Jay Albert said...

Sharon I wish I could of recorded the sound. My house is about 1/4 mile away as the seagull flies and I could hear the ocean's roar from there,to be next to it was breathtaking. Yes that is seaweed,to be exact a hunk of kelp.

Thanks for the pictures Jay. I remember when the Beacon Marine flooded when we were young. NJ is flooding through the marshes, we don't have the wave action here like back home, just water creeping slowly but surely higher and higher. I miss the sights and sounds of the backshore.

"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"!
